Ofcoursewecan is related to a Group 3 winner among others and Mark Johnston's charge makes most appeal of the newcomers. Magika stepped up on a modest debut to finish a close-up fourth at Lingfield last month where she had the re-opposing Platinum Proof well behind. She has leading claims in this but LILIANA is just preferred. The half-sister to four winners was noted staying on well for fourth over 7f here on her debut and improvement looks assured over today's longer trip.
