The progressive SUSIE JAVEA won a shade cosily when landing a hat-trick over course and distance. There looks more to come from her having already beaten My Brother Mike, Van Dijk and Crazy Spin. Luscifer has looked high enough in the weights since recording a double here at the end of last year but Glory of Paris and Three C's won over 7f at the track last month with the former beating Mister Freeze. Woke showed a big improvement on her Fibresand debut though that was in classified company and this is tougher.
