Ifrika finished a place closer when third on her debut on the Polytrack and Serena Grae showed a bit of improvement at Kempton last time. But PASSING BY makes more appeal as she still finished a close-up third at this track on her debut despite running wide and will have benefited from the experience. John Gosden introduces stablemates Betimes and Joyful Friend while Outback and Platinum Pearl are others to note, but the 140,000 euros filly Secret Pursuit stands out amongst the newcomers.
