Picual showed much-improved form to make a successful handicap debut at Nottingham last month, doing well to come from last to first in a race that wasn't strongly run. Picual only won by a neck, but she scored with a bit in hand in a race that looked like a competitive event for the grade and a 4 lb rise in the weights may underestimate her. Sir Michael Stoute hasn't had many winners in recent weeks, but his horses have been operating at a high run-to-form percentage and he holds strong claims here with Picual, who is out of a half-sister to the high-class New Bay and is open to improvement.
