Most of these would have been happier facing a set of hurdles. One such is Tarantella Lady, who sprang a surprise over timber here in January, though she did manage a win over 1m6f on soft ground at Redcar last month. George Moore's filly shouldn't be far away but the Middleham handler also saddles FINELLAS FORTUNE, who receives 7lb. The latter is still a maiden but has gone close on several occasions, including in better company, and partner Serena Brotherton can be worth her weight in gold in contests like this. Simon Walker's mount Jamarjo isn't without a chance while Hamilton third Terenzium will appreciate the ground and longer trip and Bollistick could also figure dropped in class.
