As a half-sister to stayers Mossy Bay and Silver Bay, the step up to 3m will almost certainly suit easy Exeter winner FLORAFERN and she should have plenty more to offer having been lightly campaigned this season. Cinderella Rose, withdrawn at Cheltenham yesterday on account of the going, isn't without a chance while Glenora Gale rarely runs a bad race but does struggle to get her head in front. More Equity has similar problems but Nanna Maura won a novice event at Sedgefield before finishing second at Downpatrick and has Barry Geraghty to do the steering. Miss Kalifa and last month's course winner Leith Walk look the pick of the remainder.
