This is similar to the first couple of races on today's card with a recent C&D winner, in this case KATY SPIRIT, having beaten today's main rivals on her latest start. Michael Blanshard's filly got the better of Little Indian and Kalahari Breeze last time and runner-up Devout has gone close again subsequently. The latter has the beating of Little Miss Zuri on latest running but a threat could come from the returning Petite Georgia, placed at Brighton on a couple of occasions last summer and open to improvement on her comeback.
