Margrets Gift has to be forgiven a poor run at Beverley and has a shout on her earlier placed efforts. Fisher Lane is getting closer with each run but this is tougher than his latest task at Brighton so a chance is taken on DANDANA. The latter is dropped in class for this after modest efforts at Newmarket and York and Clive Brittain's colt can take advantage. Twin Appeal is related to a host of winners and is worth a second glance on his racecourse debut.
