Ribbons returns to the scene of her debut success when she bids to regain winning ways in the Betfred Mobile Lotto Snowdrop Fillies' Stakes at Kempton Park today.
The daughter of Manduro won her first three starts over a mile, beginning over this course and distance as a two-year-old, and after successfully stepping up to nine furlongs, she lost her 100 per cent record when tackling a mile and a quarter in the Listed John Musker Fillies' Stakes at Yarmouth in September.

He returned to action at Uttoxeter last month and, under a positive ride from Noel Fehily, never saw another rival in winning by six lengths.
