Peter Chapple-Hyam has been struggling for winners lately but PEARL DIVA should lift the gloom here. The trainer has a 60 per cent strike rate with its juveniles at Folkestone and this daughter of Acclamation only needs to run somewhere near the form of her second in a Listed race at Newmarket 12 days ago to get off the mark in this. Princess Alessia, third in a Lingfield maiden last month, should make the frame again but the others look a modest bunch.
