VERANDAH gets another chance having failed to land the odds on her reappearance at Wolverhampton. A tongue-tie is applied today as she goes handicapping for the first time along with Rasima and the unbeaten Caiya. The former was narrowly beaten over 7f on the all-weather on her reappearance while the latter defied a penalty to land a novices event at Windsor last month and is preferred to recent handicap winner Arabian Jazz. Daddies Girl has been keeping better company than Fabulous Red and the Wolverhampton runner-up Line House and could also go well.
