Joyous will need to make more progress to get involved though she did run much better at Windsor last time. TEELINE ran very green behind Dodina at Yarmouth but showed a great deal of promise once realising what was required and she can go one better. Both Marjong and Sky Garden have been running well enough but are exposed while Hand Garden hasn't really progressed from her opening run on this track. Pearl Angel missed the break on her debut at Lingfield but ran on nicely and will have learned plenty.
