TAKE THE LEAD lived up to her name and made all in a more competitive sprint over 6f here last time. She'll take some pegging back if allowed to adopt the same tactics and gets the vote. It was soft ground when Windforpower went close at Newcastle and he can figure while Oscars Journey returned to action with a fourth at the same track when Bonnie Charlie was well beaten. Madagascar Moll has slipped down the weights and could go well if back to her best.
