This is an interesting start as all four of those with experience are open to plenty of improvement while newcomer Timba is by Oasis Dream and a full sister to a 6f winner. David Simcock trained last year's winner so Doncaster third Cartier must be taken seriously but MYSTIC JADE was finishing like a train over 6f here 10 days ago and her breeding suggests she'll relish the extra yardage. Starring Guest and Kipuka aren't to be dismissed lightly but may need more time.
Timba Oasis Dream filly out of Teeky.
