TYPHOON LILY made a very good impression on her debut over a mile here in December, showing good pace throughout and staying on nicely behind the odds-on Opera Gloves. Today's rival Ravello Again, who had the benefit of a previous run, was a couple of lengths behind and Michael O'Callaghan's expensive purchase should improve enough to take this. Muizenberg Nights is another certain to make progress after a promising debut behind the experienced Sword Of Light last week while Ger Lyons' newcomer Nomoneynohoney is one to keep an eye on in the betting.
