Wilhana is a half-sister to Listed winner Mijhaar and could easily make a winning start but FOSSOLA looked to be on upward curve when only beaten a length over a slightly shorter trip here last month and can open her account at the fourth time of asking. Heroine Required ran in the Oaks Trial at Lingfield in May but hasn't really lived up to expectations so far and Funky Cold Medina has been beaten in handicaps the last twice and is also starting to look exposed.
