ROYAL BLUSH is a half-sister to several winners and made a highly encouraging debut when runner-up to Princess Banu over 5f here last month. Paul Cole's filly is certain to be suited by this extra furlong and can open her account today against rivals who lack experience. Pick of the newcomers may be Midas Medusa, who is a full sister to useful sprinter Mister Hughie and hails from a yard whose two-year-olds have made an excellent start to the season. Elusive Flame and She's Flawless also make some appeal on breeding but are probably best watched today.
