COQUINE has completed a course and distance double since the application of headgear. David O’Meara’s filly may not have finished improving yet and can go in again. Lolita went close at Kempton and an apprentice’s 3lb allowance helps her cause today while Savannah Beau won over 6f at Newcastle n November and appeared not to see out 7f last time. Noble Act has proved best over 5f so far and was beaten less than a length over the minimum trip at Lingfield recently while Beau Mistral is another with something to prove over today’s trip.
