MUGAZALA is expected to improve for the extra furlong as she finished third over 7f at Newmarket on her debut in August - she can land this under Paul Hanagan. Viola Da Gamba's second at Folkestone in the same month was a promising start but she disappointed when well supported on her reappearance at Kempton a fortnight ago, while Moment In Time gave the impression she'd be better over a longer trip than she faces today when fifth at Yarmouth in October. The remainder have some catching up to do, though Indian Blossom could prove the best of them.
