Formscan - Lady Rascal recorded a staying-on success in a classified stakes at Salisbury last month, but the daughter of Nathaniel was beaten seven lengths at Newbury off a 5lb lower mark on her penultimate run. Therefore, the vote goes to handicap debutant FOLK STAR. Her dam won a Grade 1 in America over 1m 2f and was only narrowly denied in the Lillie Langtry during her career, so David Simcock's inmate looks set to progress up in distance. The grade-dropping Fox Flame completes the shortlist.
