Presumably, Girl Of Cadiz is thought to need the benefit of an apprentice's allowance on her return to action as stable jockey Richard Hughes takes an outside ride on SOMETHING MAGIC. The latter has slipped down the weights and may well be good enough dropped in class for her reappearance. Yahilwa posted a better effort when third over 6f here recently and Princess Patsky could get involved on the back of a fourth over course and distance to Intrigo, who has since gone in again. Not Now Blondie usually runs her race and makes more appeal than the out of sorts Nellie Bly.
