Al Mayasah has gone very close on the Polytrack the last twice under today's apprentice. She looks likely to be thereabouts once again but WHIMSICAL is just preferred. She too has found only one too good on the Turf of late but Richard Hannon's filly won her maiden over C&D last season and a return to this track can see her back to winning ways. Zing Wing scored over track and trip last week but has a penalty and a rise in class to deal with today and Bint Alzain's course win came over 6f in a claimer. Colorful Notion was up against it in Listed company last time but could get involved in this.
