Emily's Flyer is heading in the right direction and got off the mark in novice company at Exeter in April, despite making mistakes. Thornton Alice also arrives off the back of a victory, at Southwell, while Western Kate won over a similar trip at Newton Abbot earlier this month. Emerald Rose and On The Off Chance have been thereabouts of late but this may be a little easier than the recent races KINDLY NOTE has contested and Emma Lavelle's six-year-old can record a first victory since April last year. Aegean Destiny is back on a decent mark but usually finds at least one too good.
