This Nursery seems to lie between Enthusing and LATIN LASHES with the latter preferred. Enthusing was very impressive when winning his maiden last time and has every chance off this mark but a stronger case can be made for Latin Lashes with one that it beat out of sight last time going on to win a handicap off a mark in the mid fifties suggesting the pick is definitely off a nice mark. Indian Shuffle was only beaten a length off this mark last time so has a clear chance on that while Karate might do better now handicapping. This might develop into a two horse race with Latin Lashes coming out on top.
