Magic Ice has been knocking on the door on the Polytrack off this mark but has a poor draw here and is already starting to look exposed. Likewise Charlemagne Diva and Princess Sheila but Poppy Bond won at Redcar on her debut last May and can probably be forgiven a poor effort on Fibresand on her reappearance. JOFRANKA drops down a grade after three runs on Polytrack. She has plenty of pace in her pedigree and could improve to land this with Secret Advice having to prove she has the speed to get competitive over the minimum.
