Lady Lunchalot steps up to a mile after three placed efforts over 7f at this track while Wakeup Little Suzy showed some promise on her debut at Kempton in October and can also figure. However, the vote goes to Ed Dunlop's MISTRAL WIND as she finished a decent fourth over C&D on her introduction despite not getting a clear run in the closing stages. Maxi Dress never threatened when well beaten on last month's debut and looks to need more time.
