Fashion Line picked up a maiden race at this track on her first start since June and may well be ready to make up for lost time. She's less exposed than the likes of recent course winners Back Burner, Toymaker and Mr Red Clubs, who all step up in class today. Sky Khan and Silverware look bigger threats, especially the latter, who went close when runner-up in a higher grade here last month when unfancied in the betting. ODYSSEE was also friendless in the betting when making her debut for Marco Botti behind Rebellious Guest at Lingfield. This is less competitive and a chance is taken the Chantilly winner will be back to her best today.
