UMADACHAR started favourite on her racecourse debut in a Exeter bumper on New Year's Day and though she couldn't cope with Cool George time may tell that she was taking on a useful performer. She may have just too much stamina for Weather Babe, who has been beaten narrowly on both starts to date over shorter trips. Shine In Time may do best of the newcomers as she's the first foal of a mare who won a bumper. The remainder are mainly bred to be chasers.
