Twice a winner in Italy, FUGNINA should be spot on now after a couple of starts for Marco Botti. She has length to make up with today's rival Musharakaat on latest running over a mile at Leicester but is better off at the weights and will appreciate today's longer trip. The latter hasn't won since last year's debut at Kempton and is hard to have much faith in, but Simayill ran well enough on her belated reappearance at Newmarket last month to suggest she's capable of winning soon. It's hard to make a strong case for the remaining trio though Birdolini is perhaps capable of making the frame.
