Sary Arqa has her first run in handicap company after three relatively undistinguished efforts in maidens and also debuts for the Archie Watson team after leaving the Roger Varian yard. The betting should tell the story with her but LADY ALAVESA has the solid form in the book with three runner-up efforts from her last four starts and Harry Burns' claim puts her on an attractive mark. Her latest effort at Chelmsford reads well and she can go one better. Confirmed front-runner Aqua Libre has a decent shout too, especially if settling well and Callum Shepherd is allowed to dictate matters.
