Millibar would go close if reproducing October's run in a Listed race at Newbury, but she hasn't figured so far in four attempts on the Polytrack. However, she did have News Desk behind when fourth at this track last time and, like Samedi and Zowaina, the latter is far from being one of her stable stars. Sweetest Friend makes more appeal than Pink Delight of Stan Moore's two runners but still has plenty of improving to do so a chance is taken on Jeremy Noseda's filly BURKE'S ROCK. The 70,000gns purchase won't have to be anything special to land this on her debut and gets the nod.
