ZAFEEN'S PEARL is making up for lost time. The four-year-old filly has won her last two starts, the first of those over C&D, and produced an even better effort to score at Kempton last time.

Join Up finished in front of Hector Spectre and Justcallmehandsome here on Monday and is taken to do so again while My Sister is not out of it dropping down a grade despite still being a maiden after 14 starts.
