Winner Half Way did nothing next time to advertise the form of Childesplay's latest second at Lingfield. Two Smart only ran at Catterick on Wednesday when finding one too good again but Brown Diamond should appreciate the drop in grade and has shown enough to suggest she can get involved. SEMBLANCE is closely related to a whole host of decent performers, including Group 1-winning sprinter Maarek who loves the mud. She should know enough to make a winning start and boost her paddock value.
