Lemon Pearl sets the standard but is standing still as far as any improvement is concerned and at least one of today's rivals look likely to prove too good. Raskova will have come on for her reappearance at Windsor and steps up in trip along with Pearla, but Palkin looks a bigger threat on the back of a decent effort over today's trip at Doncaster. BONANZA CREEK also raced over 1m2f on her introduction at Newbury and ran well for fourth behind a subsequent winner. Normal progress can see her off the mark with the Godolphin newcomer Fossola worth a second glance.
