HUMMINGBIRD finished half-a-length behind Proximity on her debut over C&D last month but the latter had the benefit of previous experience that day and we expect the placings to be reversed today. Willie Haggas' filly can also get the better of Goodwood fourth All Time though Sir Henry Cecil's charge, a full sister to Passage Of Time and Father Time, surely has a future over longer trips. Treasured Dream and Waveguide have hinted at ability while Charles Hills' newcomer Divea should be monitored for market interest.
