Mystery Woman posted her best effort so far when third at Kempton to Taxiformissbyron who runs in the first race on the card. She should figure with a similar performance but CLOSE TOGETHER makes more appeal. Robert Mills' filly landed a maiden over a mile here in October and her breeding suggests this longer trip will suit. Wolverhampton winner Salute To Seville will be more at home in this company after defeat in a higher grade last week but has to reverse earlier running with Precision Strike if she's to score.
