Placed on the Polytrack, ART SHOW makes her Fibresand debut today. Ed Dunlop boasts an excellent strike rate at this track so she's likely to handle the surface and last month's fourth to Russian Bullet at Kempton gives her the beating of today's rival Regal Lady. Italian Ice was easily caught by the winner when attempting to make all here last time and Ladydolly looks a bigger threat as she went very close in a handicap over C&D on her penultimate start. Newcomer Just Me'lady is worth noting as she's related to plenty of winners, but the remainder are hard to fancy.
