Summer Sun tries hard but just can't get her head in front and TWO IN THE PINK looks likely to prove too good for her in this. The latter's third to Whipper Snapper over C&D three weeks ago is the best form on offer and Hugo Palmer's filly should be opening her account in this company. Batchworth Lady may finish closer with a recent debut under her belt while stablemate and newcomer Visual Aspect is related to four winners and is worth a second glance. The remainder have shown nothing to recommend them so far.
