GIFT OF HERA (NAP) debuts on the all-weather having found only one too good in a Class 4 contest over today’s trip at Doncaster. She looks to have leading claims at this level with Secratario stepping up in distance after beating Houlton over 1m2f in this grade at Chelmsford last time. Kingofthesingers is one to note for Sir Mark Prescott’s yard competing over middle-distances for the first time on his handicap debut but Duggary was still well beaten when placed at Lingfield and the rest are even harder to recommend.
