Iveta made her debut over a mile here where she unshipped her rider at the start. She was staying on strongly when tackling 7f at Gowran last time so it's a surprise to see her dropping to 6f here. Dimitar was in very good form here at the beginning of the year and would have needed his comeback run over the C&D in September. CANDLEHILL GIRL finished in front of him that day and though disappointing in two subsequent runs they have been over the minimum trip and this looks hers for the taking. Rummaging has been staying on strongly over 7f and this may prove too short, as it might for Khyber Pass, who was going on strongly over 7f here last time.
