Turn Turk hasn’t been seen since making a winning debut at Worcester last June but fitness is rarely a problem for one from her yard. Dame Rose got off the mark at Doncaster last month and may well defy her penalty while Royal Claret was staying on when third at Bangor in December. GREY WARBLER couldn’t match the finishing speed of the odds-on Champ at Southwell but travelled strongly for a long way and that experience will not have been lost on her. She can go one better today, though Diva Reconce is worth noting as she will likely know what’s required.
