Mrs Bannock and Lady Of Yue are both worth noting on their debuts but a couple of fellow newcomers make more appeal. Fusion is one of those as she's a half-sister to the high-class filly Attraction, but FIRST SECRETARY is just preferred. She's related to the smart pair Trade Commissioner and Galipot and may be good enough on her racecourse debut. The likely improvers having shown some ability on their initial outings include A Touch Of Fashion, Bellitudo, Hekaayaat and Puligny.
