DESTINEE ROYALE made a mockery of her opening mark when bolting up on her chase debut back in February, landing on what proved a weak race but winning it in style despite a mixed round of jumping. With further improvement on the cards, she's taken to follow up. Evander is feared most if taking up this engagement (also declared at Ayr), ahead of Aintree My Dream.
