MUMS THE WORD (NAP) was sixth in Listed company when sent over to Chantilly last month and that is easily the best form on offer. She should be winning this off a mark of 87. Dal Riata has plenty to find with the selection on these terms and arrives in poor form while Bizzarria never figured on her debut but improvement is expected from the Gosden filly here. The same comment applies to Zenovia and Naupaka on the back of modest introductions.
Bizzarria 4-1 (9-0) Mid-division on inside, shaken up and not quicken 2f out, weakening when slightly hampered 1f out, 10th of 14, 7 1/4l behind Golden Nectar (9-0) at Kempton 1m mdn fll stks (5) pol in Nov.
