CERTIFY bids to follow in the hoofprints of stablemate Lyric Of Light, who also won the May Hill at Doncaster en route to landing this 12 months ago. Mahmood Al Zarooni's filly to look a long time to master Purr Along on Town Moor, having run a little green under pressure, but she still had more than 13 lengths to spare over Masarah and has the beating of Discernable on a line through the runner-up. Ollie Olga, who had Amazonas behind at Goodwood last month, and Roz were both due to meet the selection at Doncaster but were late withdrawals. Both are progressive and should go well if taking up the challenge today while Winsili was probably held up too far off the pace when losing her unbeaten record behind Lovely Pass at Ascot and shouldn't be written off just yet.
