LADY GIBRALTAR is edging closer to that first win, running Mention to less than a length at Newbury on her latest start. She's probably on a fair mark and, despite a recent break, should go very close in her first nursery. Especially Red and Chandigarh both come here off the back of recent wins and are likely to be in the firing-line again, but Greatest Dancer and Alice's Dancer were both a little disappointing last time and the form of Toffee Tart and Pressure Drop has tailed off recently. Bellechance was highly tried at Ascot on her second start, however, and could play a part in this easier grade.
