Bugsy's Girl won a bumper at Plumpton on her racecourse debut but failed to follow-up under a penalty. It could be a similar story here on her first start since June and MM DAZZLER is preferred. Adrian Maguire's charge went close in Thurles bumper last month and can make the trip over from Ireland a worthwhile one. Neither Howlin Moon or Sonic Weld showed much on their respective debuts and Seas The Moment makes no appeal on breeding.
