Higher Court won a lower grade sprint at Kempton last month and should go well again having beaten both Born To Finish and Debonaire David in the process. The latter was beaten less than a length over 7f at Wolverhampton last week while Bahamian Heights finished closer at Lingfield last time as he looks to end a long losing run. But LOVE OASIS bounced back to form when scoring at Wolverhampton recently and given she was winning off a higher mark at Leicester as recently as June this year, Mark Johnston’s filly can go in again.
