Injaz was expected to improve in a maiden race over track and trip last time but was well beaten. He may do better now handicapping. DANCING SAL went close over course and distance last month and a repeat will see her bang there at the finish in this company. She gets the token vote ahead of Starlight Princess, who has a second over 7f at Kempton to her credit. Grande Mago, Dutch Lady and Royal Bushida are all open to improvement making their handicap debuts.
