SATSUMA, a debut winner last year on fast ground, has done well to get in here with a mark of 89 after her superb second to Body And Soul in the Super Sprint at Newbury on heavy going. She looks the type to do well this year and David Brown should have her cherry-ripe. Mayfield Girl had a busy first year winning twice and reappeared with a battling success at Nottingham for which a 2lb rise looks lenient. Rhagori Aur made a winning start to her career and ended in fine style with a double at Musselburgh and Wolverhampton and she's another who should have a successful season. Dream Maker is up 17lb after her nursery success at Chester but ran in better company and is one to keep an eye on as is Star Up In The Sky, who made good progress to score at Beverley in August.
