David Simcock runs two with Gambolling Den likely to improve and India's Song making a decent debut at Kempton back in November. Hamla will have come on for her reappearance at Wolverhampton where she finished well clear of the third and a bold bid looks likely from her while the half-brother to three winners, Red To Amber, is a newcomer to note and makes more appeal than Mad About Harry. Positive Parenting has shown nothing so far but stablemate and debutant LADY GUINEVERE won't have to be anything special to score at the first time of asking and the 40,000gns Pivotal filly gets the vote.
