Naafetha has gone backwards since a decent reappearance at Musselburgh in April so this looks between Spark Of Genius and INFORTUAL. The former has been making steady progress and battled on for second behind Hint Of Progress over a mile at Kempton but may have to settle for the runners-up spot again. Infortual started favourite for what looked a moderate contest at Lingfield in February but didn't show as much as expected. However, the form hasn't worked out badly and Charles Hills' filly looks the type to do well over the winter.
