SOCIETY PEARL has only had one career start so far but the maiden that she contested at Doncaster has produced a number of winners and, if Charlie Hills' filly handles the surface, she should take the beating. Lilbourne Eliza was put in at short odds at Wolverhampton having caught the eye in defeat at Chepstow and, though she was beaten on the day, she did finish behind two fillies that had shown form in decent maidens previously. Storma Norma is the only horse of the quintet to race under similar conditions and she was far from disgraced at Carlisle while Neamour races here rather than in a hot mile contest at Haydock. Madame Elizabeth searches for an elusive success having placed in five similar contests.
