Foxley and Makheelah may improve but will need to as they both have a bit to find on today's terms. However, the remaining trio share the same official rating. Tinaheely's latest effort at Kempton was a poor one and Uptown Guy did much better at the same track on his reappearance when fourth to Elusivity, who has since gone close off a higher mark. He has to come into the reckoning, but BAKOURA registered a cosy victory at Brighton last month and with better expected now she's got her head in front, John Dunlop's filly is taken to follow-up.
