Spirit Of Grace produced a decent effort on her debut against more experienced rivals here in November and with further progress should make her presence felt. Lady Mango hasn't exactly been consistent but she was staying on over 6f in a Kempton nursery last time and this trip will suit. Monadreen Dancer is another who will like the extra having ran on nicely in a 6f claimer here a month ago but it's by no means certain that Too Many Questions will enjoy 7f as he weakened over the trip on his debut and looked one-paced over 6f subsequently. David Elsworth has already struck early in the New Year so it would be no great surprise if his newcomer WESTHAVEN, a half-brother to Lancashire Oaks winner Barshiba, were to make a winning debut in what looks a moderate contest.
