Divine created a favourable impression on her debut at Kempton in February but didn't have much to beat. She still has more scope than Lingfield scorer Nimble Kimble, however. Rayoumti won at Wolverhampton in October but more is needed here and Starlight Serenade might need this. Thatchereen improved to finish second at Epsom in September and should have more to offer but CAY DANCER can be forgiven her run on heavy ground at Newbury in October and probably has the best overall form.
