Narborough was placed again at Nottingham last month but has had plenty of chances now. OASIS MIRAGE makes more appeal given Robert Cowell's filly found only one too good when attempting to make all at Thirsk on her latest start and this looks easier. There was little between third-paced Lady Cooper and Black Widow over 6f here recently though both were well beaten and the remainder have even less to recommend them.
