One Lucky Lady's second at Sandown was a good start to the season and she should be suited by 3m this term. Tempest River looks held on the form book. Miss Milborne won at Wincanton before finishing second in a Listed race over C&D last month and can't be ignored as Kaffie was back in fourth that day, though will strip fitter now. Swincombe Flame could be happier back over hurdles but the trip could be a problem while Silver Gypsy struggles to get her head in front. BUNGLASHA LADY beat Madame Jasmine over 3m2f at Plumpton and clearly wasn't fit when pulled up behind Tweedledrum at Ascot on her reappearance. Warren Greatrex' mare can score again here.
