Tagrita made all for an easy victory at Exeter six weeks ago. She's progressing and is likely to have plenty more to offer but KESHI PEARL sets a very decent standard on her latest third in a Listed race at Haydock, where she looked to be travelling best of all turning for home. The form of her earlier victory over 2m5f at Warwick has worked out well and she'll be tough to beat if staying this slightly longer trip. Miner Distraction won her bumper here but has yet to show much over timber and Brantingham Breeze was well beaten at Fontwell last month.
