RED FANTASY caught the eye on debut and can prove too strong for Tislimeen and Sheila Toss if all goes to plan for the Barry Hills-trained filly today. Rule Of Nature represents powerful connections and, being by the current press darling sire Oasis Dream, also merits a close look in the betting. Predicting the game-plan from a Sir Michael Stoute newcomer is never easy, so it may be best to gauge the interest of the betting market before getting involved on this occasion. Sheila Toss made good strides near the finish on her introduction at Kempton eight days ago. The winner of that race looked useful, so the form may provide valuable insights during the closing weeks of the season. Again the betting will be a good guide toward Richard Hannon's charge. Tislimeen has a very likeable pedigree but her lack of fancy entries suggests a realistic approach is being taken with this daughter of Alhaarth. Mick Channon also has an option for her on the all-weather later in the week, so it would be no surprise to see his filly being kept busy. However, Red Fantasy also shaped with plenty of promise under tender handling at Newbury earlier this month and, given the anticipated improvement to come; she is expected to be a lot wiser this time around.
