The Gosden yard's excellent strike rate at this track will ensure BILLOWING attracts support and she drops back in trip after making the frame in a couple of outings at Kempton. Daring Pursuit was well beaten on her debut when fourth over a mile here while the more exposed Ishisoba has plenty to find on today's terms with Diamondsinthesky, beaten only head over 5f at this track last time. Guishan failed to figure in either start here last month but any support for Richard Fahey filly, Cocoa's Princess, could prove significant.
