SHAFFIRE has yet to win but went close to doing so in a fillies’ only race over track and trip last time. She drops down a grade for this and Harry Whittington’s yard has had a couple of winners already this month. Azets faces a tougher task having opened her account here last month and a high draw doesn’t help but Al Daiha and Avorisk Et Perils have both been thereabouts over longer trips recently. Bint Dandy failed to cope carrying a penalty last time having won over 7f at Chelmsford before that while The Warrior went close here before struggling at Kempton.
