LIGHTNING SPIRIT ended last season with a victory on the all-weather but her fourth over track and trip in August came in much better company and Gary Moore's filly is the speculative selection on her return to action. Emerald Royal was winning at Kempton in February and is racing on turf for the first time since his debut in 2010 but Sudden Wish is less exposed and she could figure having scored at Lingfield in January and going close once again at the same track last time. Excellent Vision has been placed here before and could make the frame again.
