Ishiamber made the frame on her belated racecourse debut but has to give plenty of weight to the younger horses including Windlass. The latter made a decent start at this track but let supporters down at Lingfield when well beaten last month. LA NAPOULE actually finished closer to the winner when third last time than she did when runner-up on her introduction. Her experience should give her the edge over newcomers Her Red Devil, Khatiba and 190,000gns purchase Joie De Reve, though Labise is a half-sister to the very useful Mufarrh amongst others and could prove more of a threat.
