Arrow Lake, Coach Montana and Indian Guest have all shown enough to suggest they can figure in this modest handicap but Joy To The World has failed to build on her third at Salisbury in May and the fitting of blinkers on the well-bred Ebtisama smacks of desperation. DARK ORCHID has only had three runs and it looked as though the penny was finally dropping at Warwick last time. With Ryan Moore in the saddle here and an apparently favourable draw, Peter Chapple-Hyam's filly could be the one though this is not a race on which to stake the mortgage.
