Kiss From A Rose gained her only victory on Polytrack but made a reasonable return at Nottingham after missing the break. Scoreline ran easily his best race of last season on this track, though the ground was soft, while Storyline has been showing good speed before fading. Classical Diva started off her first campaign in good form but hasn't progressed as expected so this can go to Irish raider EVER YOURS, who has been staying on strongly in his recent races without quite getting there - blinkers can encourage him to finally get off the mark.
