ETAAB had subsequent Windsor scorer Bragging behind when making most of the running on the Polytrack at Lingfield in May. It's interesting that Sir Michael Stoute thinks it is worth taking her on again on worse terms but we still fancy the unexposed Haggas filly to come out on top. Hala Hala won twice last year and can be forgiven her run on the Fibresand in April while Native Heart showed improved form to win at Leicester last week, though has a penalty to carry in this better race. Bright Cecily may improve for her reappearance but Greyvillea and Tea In Transvaal look high enough in the weights.
