Eevilynn Drew made a winning debut when scoring over today’s trip at Kempton but is penalised as a consequence and NOTFORALONGTIME can take advantage. The latter will have gone into a few notebooks after producing a strong finish after a slow start to finish a close-up fourth over 6f here and giving the impression this extra furlong will suit in the process. The remainder with experience have plenty of improving to do if they are to figure. Showmolina, a half-brother to a Listed winner, makes most appeal of the newcomers.
