Sarista just held on at Ripon last time but is improving. However, she was beaten by Paddy Again on her debut at Redcar so has a bit to find with TIGGY WIGGY on a line through the Brocklesby runner-up. Richard Hannon's filly never saw another rival in a conditions race at Salisbury last time and found more when challenged. It's difficult to see second Exentricity reversing the form here on worse terms, though there are races to be won with Mick Channon's daughter of Paco Boy. Zuhoor Baynoona easily justified the odds on debut at Yarmouth, despite missing the break, and is another filly worth following in the first half of the season. Patience Alexander won by nine lengths at Wolverhampton but has more on her plate here.
