Verdict

Kieren Fallon has ridden 12 winners from just 32 rides for Mark Johnston this season which is a positive for Itzakindamagic who has progressed with each visit to the track although Fallon is 0 from 5 on the yard's juveniles. Geordie Iris won more easily than the winning margin of a neck suggests and it would be folly to rule out Ihavenotime but MEMORY LANE possibly holds the answer. Sir Mark Prescott's filly is a half-sister to a dual course and distance winner which offers optimism that she may improve for her first run away from Kempton and there was plenty of encouragement to be taken from her latest performance where she stayed on well behind some fair sorts despite being caught wide on the track.
