PERSIAN BREEZE has undoubtedly been disappointing but a strong pace on Turf over this trip should enable her to get competitive again and she's given another chance. Ataman looked to be travelling best at Windsor but didn't find much when push came to shove though the longer trip may help, a remark that also applies to the consistent Reetaj. Tidal Moon is another who has enough chances and ran a shocker at Leicester.
