The returning Minalisa has leading claims if taking to the surface and Dancheur is another Fibresand debutante who could figure on the back of a second at Kempton. Spark Of Genius made the frame over 7f here in a lower grade race earlier this year but MATA HARI BLUE has the best course form. She dotted up by six lengths over 5f at this track on her penultimate start and Mike Appleby's mare has scored over course and distance before. Beau Mistral and Camache Queen look up against it in this company.
