Timeform on Black Gardenia

#9 Undiscovered Gem - Fairview R6 (13:30 GMT)

Undiscovered Gem won over this course and distance last month and ran just as well when runner up over a slightly shorter trip next time. She failed to justify favouritism on her latest outing, when a creditable fourth here, but is worth siding with to regain the winning thread. Travel In Style and Horse Haizi look the best of the remainder.

#8 Aldo - Fairview R7 (14:05 GMT)

Aldo returned to something close to his best when a good second in a handicap at this course last month and is expected to be bang there again today. Omega Onslaught represents the main danger, while Dutch Philip edges it for third.

#8 Black Gardenia - Fairview R8 (14:40 GMT)

Black Gardenia has been operating at a good level of late and will take plenty of beating if arriving here in the same form as when a ready winner of a course handicap last month. Miss Orange has been a little below par since opening her account in November, but has to be taken seriously on the pick of her form, while Afleet Flyer holds solid place claims.
