Sioux Rising to continue Fahey's good run ?

I have often sided with Anne of Kiev during her improvement and although I'm not discounting her today I think Sioux Rising, if the first time blinkers take effect, will be bang there given her stables good form and 5/1 is a good price for her. She has worn cheekpieces in her last 3 races so you may think there must be a reason for all this but often first time headgear is the time to catch it. She obviously didnt like the slow surface at Southwell so we can easily discount that run and she is 8lb better off with Perfect Art for a nose beating here previously when she had an interupted run and she has had a break to freshen her up since. Also she has only had 14 starts to date so she could be open to some improvement today.
Anne of Kiev has a very good AW record 22129153425112 and she probably is going to be bang there again and it wouldnt be a total suprise if she won and Five Star Junior could make up the first 3.
