Gold Filigree found one too good in Listed company at Bath but seems best over 5f. Isaan Queen won a Listed contest at Chelmsford earlier in the month but has a 10lb rise to contend with back in a handicap. KAREENA KAPOOR could have been found an easier opportunity for her handicap debut but Simon Crisford’s filly beat a subsequent dual winner when scoring at Newcastle and gets the vote to take a further step forward in this. Dizzy G was progressive last year but hasn’t raced since July and Excellent Times is preferred with a recent reappearance under her belt. Our Little Pony looks to be facing a tough task at this level.
