Verdict

DIVA KAREEM’s defeat at Goodwood was disappointing but she is the one to beat here on an earlier third at Kempton as, being out of a High Chaparral mare, the step up to 7f should suit. Mrs Dukesbury found only one too good over the trip at Lingfield and is open to improvement. Chairlift Chat showed some promise when fourth at Salisbury and Indian Creak has already placed twice. Tom Marquand prefers newcomer Buy Nice Not Twice to stablemate Winnetka and the nicely-bred northern raider Lawaa is also an interesting debutant
