GOLDEN FLOWER showed plenty of pace when going close in a nursery at Dundalk for Ger Lyons last month. Transferred to a new yard since, Silvestre De Sousa's booking takes the eye and she can get off the mark back in maiden company. Midnight Dream was caught in the closing stages over 6f here last time and has strong claims on that form and Not Rigg will be thereabouts if repeating last month's second to Ferjaan at Kempton. Lager Time looks a likely improver while the newcomers La Luz Del Sol and Saga Lout are both worth a second glance in the betting.
