Blueberry Fizz will surely win at this level one of these days, but patience has ran out with her as she keeps finding at least one too good. It could be the same story today as LOVAT LANE is slightly better off with the latter on running here last month and has since gone close again when third at Lingfield. She gets the vote ahead of Jackie Love, who is another regular in this grade and had Pastoral Jet behind when scoring here in December, while Tawseef continues his slide down the weights and should be opening his account in the near future.
