FRIENDSHIP IS LOVE won't need to be anything special to score on her racecourse debut in an uninspiring opener. Her dam is related to a winner on the all-weather so David Elsworth's filly gets the speculative vote. Guru Baby finished ahead of Sally Bruce when third over 7f here in December and the latter has gone close in a handicap at the same track subsequently. That pair make more appeal than Tavistock Fair, who has finished last in both starts to date albeit over longer trips.
Tavistock Fair 50-1 (8-3) Towards rear, ridden 2f out, never dangerous, last of 9, 16l behind Gabrial's Wawa (8-9) at Kempton 1m mdn stks (5) pol in Feb.
Friendship Is Love Byron filly out of Silver Sail.
Guru Baby 20-1 (8-6) Tracked leader and keen, ridden over 2f out, faded inside final furlong, 4th of 5, 12l behind Emperor Julius (8-11) at Kempton 7f mdn auc stks (6) pol in Feb.
Sally Bruce 10-1 (8-6) Dwelt, towards rear, headway over 2f out, soon no further progress, 7th of 8, 10l behind Bouyrin (8-13) at Kempton 6f mdn fll (5) pol in Feb.
