With the exception of a poor run on the Fibresand, HAZARD WARNING has shown good progress and last week's cosy win over track and trip was his best effort yet. He can defy a penalty and get the better of Katy Spirit, third at Kempton off today's mark on her latest start. Ayasha has a shout with a 7lb claimer on board though she hasn't raced since November and Free Island is another returning from an absence but has plenty of scope on her handicap debut. Loulou Vuitton will need to step up on her recent placed efforts in maiden races if she's to figure.
