TAKEALOOKATMENOW just failed to catch the winner when beaten a short-head over C&D last time. She had today's rival Headstight over five lengths behind and can open her account today. Hurriya should improve for her recent debut at Southwell, though she has plenty to find along with Lady Mandy, who never threatened at Nottingham on her first start. Newcomer Champagne Katie is related to winners and preferred to stablemate Italian Ice, while It's My Time is another debutant to keep an eye on.
