FAB LOLLY only does just enough but is on a hat-trick after a couple of narrow-margin victories. She scored with the minimum of urging at Lingfield last time and can confirm earlier running with Shaunas Spirit in the process of landing this. Ivor's Princess looks more exposed on the evidence of her form since winning over track and trip in December. The same comment applies to Broughtons Charm and Sugarformyhoney, both winners in November and well beaten subsequently. Russian Ice went close here earlier in the year and may prove a bigger threat.
