Azelle was third at Newbury on her only previous try over this trip and is one for the short-list in an ordinary maiden, though she is pretty much exposed as is Lingfield third It's Taboo. Nepalese Pearl was second at Kempton earlier this month and may be improving while Marjong filled the same spot behind Secondo over this course and distance when MEDISKA and Lady Vermeer were behind. Henry Candy's filly was making her debut that day, however, and ran green before running on strongly from the rear in the closing stages. She can reverse the form today and open her account. Russian Royale showed promise on her only start last year and is another worthy of a mention along with newcomer Ramata.
