Sir Michael Stoute's runners here have registered a 60% strike rate this term and while the trainer can be forgiven for having some of the more illustrious members of his team on his mind, he'd be disappointed if JUST DARCY were not able to convert a couple of placed efforts on the turf into a win on the Polytrack. Mesmerized came up against another Stoute hotpot at Goodwood previously, and with that winner going on to oblige in Listed company, the handicapper may have given her a real chance off a mark of 67. Fast Pace was a beaten favourite for a maiden at Lingfield during the winter though she atoned for that display with victory in a handicap at Nottingham off a 4lb lower mark. Movementneverlies can often be slowly away and the Wolverhampton maiden winner makes a step up in trip tonight.
