HARD WALNUT has joined Olly Stevens from Ireland and went very close over track and trip on her first start since October. Today's opposition have yet run anywhere near the same level and she can open her account in this. Club Electra had Lady Farah and Is This Love behind at Wolverhampton three weeks ago but was still beaten six lengths while Limoges never threatened when fifth here last time. Lasaraleen and Dubai Applause look likely to improve but will need to if they're to figure.
