KERRERA (NAP) was having her first start since May and was debuting for Dean Ivory’s yard when scoring over track and trip last month. There should be more to come from her at this level having slipped down the weights and she can confirm latest running with fifth-placed Dukes Meadow. Pike Corner Cross won over a longer trip in October and The King's Steed scored over 7f here in the same month but Lacan looks no nearer winning despite tumbling down the handicap.
