STELLA CLAVISQUE ran well for second in a conditions race on the all-weather at Deauville last time. She should have the beating of these with a similar effort. Singapore Secret disappointed at Thirsk having shown some promise on her debut at Doncaster but it's too soon to write her off while improvement is also expected from Andy Dandy and Nice Arty. Lightning Shower is a half-brother to a couple of winners and makes more appeal than Bousfield of the newcomers.
