The Fahey yard bids for its fourth straight win in this contest and the £100,000 yearling Winstanley may prove above average. But he'll need to be to get the better of AL GHUWARIYAH. The latter was only beaten a short-head by Spirit Of Xian in a Newmarket maiden last month and any improvement on that would make Kevin Ryan's filly the one to beat. The newcomer Mambo Paradise is a half-sister to a Listed winner and makes more appeal than Secret Friend and Kepple's Best.
