A few of these have been threatening a return to winning ways including ZENARINDA. She wasn't beaten far when sixth in better company last time and finished in front of both Wordiness and Resplendent Alpha over C&D before that. The latter has since finished fourth back at this track with Landesherr only a half-length behind and Hawaana found only one too good over track and trip on his penultimate start. Ellie In The Pink has slipped back to a winning mark but has yet to show any signs of benefitting.
