SARD can defy her absence and get back to winning ways. Michael Jarvis has his horses in good form and this daughter of Bahamian Bounty was impressive at Goodwood in May. Two runs after didn't go to plan but the return to seven furlongs on slower ground should be in her favour. Hooligan Sean is yet to break his duck and despite his consistency is opposable, a verdict that is also reached regarding Lenkiewicz and Chat De La Burg. Of more interest is Pan American for whom the return to seven furlongs is a plus, whilst Cat Hunter and Interakt have both had excuses for the odd bad run of late and each is considered from the foot of the weights.
