Verdict

SILK SARI is a superbly-bred daughter of Dalakhani who looks a typical Luca Cumani improver and can follow up her Pontefract maiden success from what looks a lenient mark. Astonishing landed a Kempton maiden before a decent effort on her handicap debut at Goodwood where she was caught in the last strides by Miss Dashwood. Willow Beck was on a five-timer when beaten here last month where she was racing on soft ground for the first time. Back on quicker going she has to be a threat along with Phaenomena, who found Chester's tight track against her after her maiden victory at Newbury. Zipp gets into the handicap with a very low weight and looked much improved on soft ground at Windsor.
