Iberis didn't appear to make progress from her debut when mid-division at Doncaster and will probably do better next year but Princess Patsky showed good pace for a long way on her debut at Goodwood and will have come on for the run. Marco Botti saddles newcomer Diletta Tommasa and she's another who may be seen to her best advantage in her second season so this can go to MAGIQUE. She's also bred for middle-distances and couldn't go the early pace on her debut on fast ground at Yarmouth but was staying on strongly in the closing stages and today's going should make this more of a stamina test. Tight Fit should also have benefited from her opening run at Kempton and looks best of the remainder.
