LEAD ROLE kept on well for third over the minimum trip here on her debut and may well improve enough to come out best over this extra furlong. Scarlet Strand showed some progress when running into a place over C&D last time but First Serve ran better on her debut at Ripon than she did on the Fibresand in August. Bouyrin gets the help of a 7lb claimer today and that brings her into the equation and the 80,000gns newcomer Is This Love wont have to be anything special to figure on her racecourse debut.
