Layla's Oasis beat Modern Lady and Mossgo when scoring at Wolverhampton last month. She was sent off odds-on to win a claimer at Kempton last time but never looked like beating today's rival TARTAN BLUE. The latter was having only her second start and can follow up with further progress on the cards. Work Ethic has been beaten on a couple of occasions since scoring at Wolverhampton in October and Con Leche finished a length in front of Spicy when third in a maiden at the same track last month.
