Forcing tactics clearly suited ALLEGRIA at Haydock last time and she stayed on strongly for a comfortable victory. She has the beating of Hidden Gold on a line through Haydock second Button Down and may take some pegging back here if Robbie Havlin is allowed to dictate terms again. Reesha should be suited by this step up in distance as her dam won over 1m6f. She was only beaten half-a-length at Sandown on her handicap debut having beaten a good yardstick at Leicester earlier. Fiery Sunset appears on the upgrade but it's difficult to make a case for any of the older fillies on today's terms.
