SAKURAMACHI is the obvious pick on her promising debut third at Catterick. The runner-up has since won and Mick Channon's filly looks up to opening her account in this company. Marti's Girl posted her best effort so far at Musselburgh last week and is preferred to stablemates Tunnel Tiger and Rubylicious while Valued Opinion made up late ground on his debut at Kempton after a slow start and may also figure. Lady Captain has shown little progress of late but See Me Sometime has been placed in a seller in between a couple of poor runs.
