Zenarinda may not have to improve significantly in order to make a winning start to handicapping even allowing for the claims of Ellies Image but the suggestion is MISS CHAUMIERE who nestles at the foot of the weights. She has certainly deserved her rating of 55 having been beaten a combined total of 86 lengths in three visits to the racecourse but she is related to some fair performers and it's to be hoped that she'll be seen in a better light in this company. Zenarinda ran well in a Yarmouth maiden behind Bullet Train and shaped well on her reappearance over ten furlongs and she has to be on the short-list but the shorter trip is a slight concern. Ellies Image brings winning form to the table and is only 2lbs higher than when winning at Catterick so is by no means weighted out of this but she has never raced on ground as soft as this. Scottish Boogie avoids a penalty for his win at Ffos Las and his pedigree suggests that he may well relish the underfoot conditions so he has obvious claims but we're prepared to take a chance, at a price, with Miss Chaumiere.
