Verdict

FRIENDSHIP IS LOVE won't need to be anything special to score on her racecourse debut in an uninspiring opener. Her dam is related to a winner on the all-weather so David Elsworth's filly gets the speculative vote. Guru Baby finished ahead of Sally Bruce when third over 7f here in December and the latter has gone close in a handicap at the same track subsequently. That pair make more appeal than Tavistock Fair, who has finished last in both starts to date albeit over longer trips.
