Sheila's Footsteps showed improved form here last time and steps up a furlong today. But Mairise didn't finish any closer at Kempton last week and will need more to get involved. Spectator was a disappointment when returning a losing favourite at the same track last time and the likes of Examiner and Old Town Boy may improve past him having only their second starts. With none of the above instilling much confidence, MY RED DEVIL may well be good enough to make a winning start as her sister scored over today's trip on the Polytrack early this year and Richard Fahey's filly gets the speculative vote.
