A few of these have been allocated a handicap mark and Slope comes out best of those. But she'll need to improve on a modest effort at Wolverhampton if she's to figure while Go Far is another frustrating type fitted with a visor for the first time here. Well beaten in bumpers, Twilight Angel very nearly landed a gamble on her debut on the Flat at Lingfield. She'll figure if handling the track, but DARING PURSUIT won't need to be anything special to make a winning start and given her sister is a Listed winner in Germany, Karl Burke's filly gets the vote to open her account.
Daring Pursuit Pastoral Pursuits filly out of Daring Destiny.
