PATRONA CIANA reappeared to score at Ayr last month and was by no means disgraced in a much better race than this at York on Friday. She has to prove herself on the surface but could be too good for Fibresand regular Abi Scarlet, who was on odds-on chance when beaten in a seller here last month though she'd won twice earlier this year. Amosite has been narrowly beaten three times here already this year from around the same mark while Lady Ibrox has generally competed at a much higher level though she's only had one all-weather run and that was on Polytrack. Guishan won a maiden here in January but has been well beaten in handicaps subsequently.
