CHANTREA was well backed over course and distance on her reappearance and rewarded supporters with a narrow-margin victory. Still showing her inexperience, Lady Cecil's filly can only improve and is preferred to Walk With An Angel. The latter opened her account over 6f at Kempton last month and should get the better of the more exposed pair Global Explorer and Iseemist. First Experience has recorded both wins at Wolverhampton but below-par efforts elsewhere suggest she's best at the Midlands track.
