INDARIA is going the right way and followed up a maiden win with a victory at Ffos Las on her handicap debut. Pat Millman's allowance means she can effectively race off a lower mark in this and she is worth sticking with. Clouds Rest won her maiden over track and trip but has lost her way of late albeit in better company than this while handicap debutant Chances Are won at Thirsk last time and Crosse Fire finished runner-up in testing ground at the same track.
