Cloudwalker looked in need of the run on her reappearance at Lingfield and is on the short-list along with Broadway Duchess, another who will have come on for her recent return to action. The latter finished just in front of NARMIN at Newbury three weeks ago but the latter was making her racecourse debut and caught the eye with a pleasing performance. She can get off the mark though Hidden Belief has some decent form on Polytrack and the selection's stablemate Ruffled is out of a smart mare who won in France and the USA.
