Verdict

Dolly Diva, Imtithal and Mishhar showed enough last season to suggest they can win an ordinary maiden. However, all three were beaten out of sight on their comeback runs and may need more time on that evidence. DUTCH GAL may do better on her reappearance as she finished fourth at Newmarket in November and won't have to improve much on that to come out best here. Both newcomers are worth a second glance in the betting with the half-sister to a couple of winners, Royal Style, just preferred to Lady Artiste.
