Her Red Devil is 4lb higher than when third over track and trip last month, though George Chaloner's claim will help her cause. However, she was beaten fair and square by Indian Giver at Hamilton earlier. Suni Dancer is a bit erratic but Heavenly River seems to be improving, though possibly not quickly enough to beat LA HAVRESE on today's terms. Ann Duffield's filly won at Catterick at the start of the month and made a bold bid to follow up off her new mark at the same track 10 days later.
