Kleo has strong claims on her narrow-margin defeat at Windsor last month. She found the Roger Varian-trained Igider too good and the handler runs MUHAWALAH in this. The latter went close at Doncaster last time with Dream Child nearly four lengths back in third and can open her account. Hadya may improve for the longer distance and get involved while the newcomer Noble Descent is related to three winners and is one to note for any significant support in the betting.
