The superbly-bred Windshield could do with a victory for her paddocks value but hasn't shown much to date and will probably do better over further. She was around 10 lengths behind subsequent winner Just One Kiss at Lingfield when Speechday finished runner-up and it's the latter who is expected to improve and get into the frame. Mists Of Time made her debut in 2012 in Listed company but was well beaten when fancied on her only subsequent start last April. BEYLERBEY must have had problems as she's bred to be a star. Her stable has been in tremendous form and wouldn't have kept her unless she was thought capable of winning races so she's handed the vote. Confiture may prove next best as she was staying on when a close third to New Colours over the track and trip in December.
