Verdict

ALBARAKA was fancied to make a winning debut and sent off favourite over 7f at Kempton last month. She ran on strongly to claim second behind the well regarded She Ain't A Saint on that occasion and today's extra distance can see her go one better. Spirit Of Grace faded close home when fourth over a mile at Lingfield last time and can go close again, while Thymesthree is expected to reverse recent form with the more exposed Beauchamp Xiara here. Covert Decree is a half-sister to a winner and also worth noting on her debut.
