Floating Along was well supported to open her account at Doncaster on her reappearance but found one too good again. SUPERBOOT may well improve past her today on the back of his close-up third at Chester. He finished clear of the rest of the field on that occasion and also makes more appeal than Talqaa and Blue Twister. Hi Filwah cost 160,000 euros and is a half-brother to three winners. He could figure on his debut and is preferred to fellow newcomers Chilworth Diva and Coire Gabhail.
