PRACTISING stands out and is likely to be a warm order to open her account. She was only headed in the closing stages at Sandown on her debut and won't have to improve much on that to land this. Captain Scarlet looks next best of those with experience on his well beaten third at Wolverhampton but one of the newcomers could prove a bigger danger. Of those, Illuminating Dream is related to three winners and is worth noting along with Olymnia and Miss Sophisticated.
