BHINDI has finished runner-up the last twice and can go one better in this competitive looking opener. Both of those efforts came at Windsor and she is taken to get the better of Polly's Gold who is another to have finished runner-up the last twice whilst Kareva , a disappointment when odds-on for a novice contest on soft ground last time out can bounce back by claiming third here.
