PEMBA (NAP) has landed the odds in minor contests at Doncaster and Catterick since finishing second on her UK debut at Warwick. This is her stiffest task to date but she should have more to offer. Midnight Jazz is eased slightly in grade and hasn't been disgraced in two starts this term. She holds Flementime on the form book while there are also possibilities about Hannah's Princess, who won at Doncaster around this time last year and was then second in a Listed handicap at Newbury. Anda De Grissay has been beaten twice when odds-on recently in modest contests and is unlikely to be good enough to make amends in this.
