KENTFORD GREY LADY looks a progressive mare and could make the most of the weight she receives from more experienced rivals in this. Emma Lavelle's charge is still learning her trade but was always travelling strongly when beating good yardstick Miss Milborne at Exeter last month and well-beaten fourth Tempest River has franked the form since. Whoops A Daisy has to be feared with Jeremiah McGrath claiming 5lb, however, as she kept on strongly to beat today's rivals Cloudy Spirit and Violin Davis in a Listed event over C&D last time and is very consistent. Violin Davis had earlier beaten Cool Friend over 2m6f at Wincanton, though the latter is still preferred to Kelso second Seedless over this longer trip.
