ECONOMY is by Dalakhani out of a Yorkshire Oaks winner but has only raced once when runner-up over this trip at Lingfield last summer. That race has worked out poorly but today's opposition looks neglible so he's taken to get his career on track. Earls Quarter had been chasing before landing a Lingfield jumpers' bumper in February while the 170,000gns yearling Alzammaar finished last on his only start at Newmarket in October. Neston Grace has won two bumpers and scored twice over hurdles then made a fair debut under Flat rules in a Lingfield maiden in February so she can earn some prize money before reverting to hurdling.
