Miss Brazil has been raised 4lb since her second at Brighton, which seems harsh, while Pactolus has more to do than when winning a Kempton maiden in January. But Arranger appreciated the return to 6f at Newmarket and should be in the firing-line. Searchlight has yet to score in five previous tries over this trip, however, and is now tried in blinkers. SPRING FLING was just beaten by Lightning Moon at Salisbury last month and winner went on to easily beat Pennine Warrior and Red Lady in a better race at Haydock. Henry Candy's lightly-raced filly can recoup losses in this.
