Mountain Myst never figured on his recent debut at Kempton and Soviet Spring ran poorly at the same track last week. Entrance failed to take to the Fibresand last time but is not without a chance judged on his earlier efforts on the Polytrack while Links Drive Lady should be capable of better stepping up in distance. ELVIRA DELIGHT was unfancied on her debut over 6f at Kempton in November but kept on for fifth place in the closing stages. Today's trip should see her in a better light and she gets the vote.
