POLLY PEACHUM finished a promising runner-up at Newbury on her debut in March and Nicky Henderson's filly can get off the mark if handling the soft ground. Crowcombe Park had the re-opposing Indian Citizen behind when fifth on her introduction at Uttoxeter and should confirm superiority. She makes more appeal than Card Lover while newcomers to look out for in the betting include the sister to a bumper winner, Lady Boru, and Alan King's points winner Sapphire Moon.
