JARLATH won a couple of times at Kempton before finishing third at Windsor. Maybe the ground was too soft on the latter occasion and he gets another chance as he at least knows where the winning post is. Bajan Beauty ran no sort of race when favourite at Southwell but the Fibresand can be an acquired taste and she still has time on her side. Mambo Rhythm weakened quickly over a shorter trip at Pontefract last time but Izbushka looked as though he wanted even further when third over 1m6f at Nottingham.
