Verdict

This mark has proved beyond ARQALINA in the past, but it may be a different story this time round. Indeed, she displayed a willing attitude when striking at Hereford 13 days ago and that is by far the most persuasive piece of recent form on evidence here. Episode is next on the list having hit the crossbar on her latest start in this sphere at Fakenham. Boro Babe also enters calculations.
