Previously without a win, DEWALA has looked a different proposition in a couple of starts here this year. She sluiced up over a mile under today's apprentice before winning by 12 lengths over track and trip last time and has to be followed until beaten. Stanley Rigby has done all his winning at this track and went close to ending a long losing run when beaten a length here on his latest start. He looks the main danger ahead of course winner Light The City and recent Kempton runner-up Amana. Toughness Danon continues his slide down the weights but isn't getting any closer and has won just the once in 35 starts.
