GLORIOUS TWELFTH is gradually getting there and enjoys a 10lb turnaround in the weights than when beaten just under two lengths by Tickity Bleue at Newbury. Nicky Henderson's mare can finally get off the mark here, though Alan King's charge is probably open to more improvement. Bonne Fee is the other penalised runner in the race but she hasn't been seen since winning a weak bumper at Hereford in November. Toot Sweet has shown promise and looks the pick of the remainder though Midnight Belle can improve on her fifth at Ffos Las and any money for newcomer Old Dreams would be interesting.
