SHERZAM was attempting to concede 12lb to Desiderata when just touched off over the track and trip in December and looks ready to gain her first victory with Luke Dempsey's claim a major bonus. Nomoneynohoney made a very promising debut behind the odds-on Typhoon Lily three weeks ago and, with that under her belt, looks certain to get competitive while John Oxx saddles a pair of nicely-bred newcomers who must be respected. Papaya may prove the pick of the pair at this stage as she's a half-sister to numerous winners including the very useful Lend A Hand while Sheer Delight is related to a 7f winner and a winner over hurdles.
