Hint Of Promise only found Christingle too good in a maiden auction over an extra furlong at Wolverhampton last time and will be fancied to go one better here. But we prefer SPARK OF GENIUS, who finished third over 7f here last month before running fourth in a better race at Lingfield. The Halling filly Handsome Molly is a potentially interesting debutante and preferred to Sugar Lips but Doncaster fifth Silkee Supreme has had plenty of chances and none of the remainder warrant serious consideration on their efforts to date.
