A number of these fillies will no doubt improve as three-year-olds and Aquilla certainly gave notice there was better to come when fourth to Collima at Nottingham in November. Brief Chat stayed on late when third over 7f at Lingfield in October and Zaahya started favourite at Doncaster last August on her second start. She should prove better than she showed that day but her yard is having a very quiet season. Gold Show was fourth in a Listed race at Newbury last month but hasn't quite reproduced that form since. However, she still looks the best of those that have had a run this year ahead of Santarini. MORROW is by Pivotal and a half-sister to several winners. She showed enough at Yarmouth in October to suggest she can win a race this season, though newcomers Infinite Hope and Mariet could be worth monitoring for future reference.
