Saucy Minx won her maiden over track and trip last time and should be thereabouts again but BROADWAY DUCHESS was more impressive when opening her account at Newmarket. Richard Hannon's filly picked up nicely to win by nearly three lengths and can follow-up on her handicap debut. Malekat Jamal and Askaud carry penalties for recent victories and the former should confirm running with previous winner Alice's Dancer, while dual 1m winner Sharp And Smart is not out of this either dropping back down in class.
