Beylerbey made a promising start over a mile at Kempton only to disappoint back at the same track last time and tries her hand at sprinting today. ROLE REVERSAL makes more appeal on her debut third over track and trip given the runner-up has won subsequently. James Tate's filly gets the vote ahead of the newcomer Double Up, who is worth noting for any support in the betting. Cocoa's Princess showed no noticeable improvement on the Fibresand last time and Willy Brennan never figured on last year's debut at Newbury.
