Runninglikethewind will have come on for a reappearance third at Yarmouth last month. His day will come but Zhuba finished ahead of him at Yarmouth and Kensington Gardens also makes more appeal after a second on the Turf at Lingfield. SURENESS never threatened behind Missed Call over track and trip but it looked a decent maiden on paper and it would be no surprise if she proved good enough on her handicap debut. Marco Botti's filly gets the vote ahead of Prospera, a close-up third over 1m4f at Windsor recently.
