Dandys Perier scored over track and trip in November and has won again at Lingfield since. But he could only manage fifth off today's mark at the same track last time, while Alumina opened her account at Kempton recently but it's been some time since her yard had a winner at this venue. DEFINITE SECRET will need to step up on her recent efforts but didn't have much luck in-running over 7f here last time. She also has the beating of Meebo on collateral form and it could be her turn today.
