CHOICE OF DESTINY drops back in distance today but was beaten only a head over track and trip on her debut. A first-time visor may sharpen her up and she can open her account.

Romantic Bliss was only placed in a seller last month and Desert Colours finished ahead of Limegrove when fourth over 6f here recently.
