Fatima's Gift and Just Darcy have both been placed in handicaps and will find life easier back in maiden company. Alnawiyah is less exposed and steps up in distance for only her second start of the year while Silent Movie's breeding sends out mixed signals regarding today's trip as he makes his racecourse debut. CATERINA DE MEDICI looked in need of the outing when fading quickly at Kempton on her first start for Ed Walker. She'd ran well on the Polytrack at Deauville on a couple of occasions last year and much better is expected today with that run under her belt.
