KAWSSAJ is improving at a rate of knots judged on his maiden win on the Polytrack at Lingfield a fortnight ago. He won doing handstands on that occasion and Roger Varian's colt is taken to make a winning handicap debut. Rondeau never figured at Brighton last time after a victory at Epsom, but the consistent Local Singer should be thereabouts once again. She's A Saint has shown little on turf since landing a double on the Polytrack early this year, but there should be more to come from Cape Rambler and Foxtrot Hotel.
