Verdict

Lady Lawyer made a winning start at Kempton last year and returned to action with a second over 7f at Doncaster with Rapture well beaten. But a penalty may be her undoing once again given FIERY MISSION (NAP) showed enough on last month’s debut at Windsor behind Vasiliev, rated 89, to suggest he can win at this level and Sir Michael Stoute’s colt gets the nod. Several are looking to improve representing powerful connections including the Godolphin colt Ghaly and Sea Wings, who wears blinkers today having failed to figure at Newmarket. Shining Sea drops down in trip and breeding suggests it will suit the half-sister to the smart Oh This Is Us.
