Loma Mor ran well enough for third on fast ground at Yarmouth last week having made a winning debut at this track earlier last month. Alan McCabe's filly beat today's rival CHEEKY PETA'S on that occasion but the latter re-opposes on better terms and is fancied to turn the tables with improvement expected. Recent Kempton winner Thewandaofu will figure if handling the surface and makes more appeal than Left Defender, third at Windsor last week. Newcomer Mystic Angellina is hard to fancy on breeding on may be best watched today.
