OSAILA proved last month's decent effort in the Albany Stakes here was no fluke by landing a novice event at Doncaster with the minimum of fuss. She beat a field of previous winners by three lengths and this contest looks hers for the taking. She's well clear of Rosie's Premiere and Pastoral Girl on official ratings but Accipiter beat a subsequent winner at Chepstow and should be thereabouts. Goldcrest is another on the up after scoring at Newbury while both Explosive Lady and Muraaqaba have plenty of scope after making winning debuts in maiden company.
