Tanawar endured a tough race on testing ground at Beverley so there could be mileage in opposing him and GRACE HULL is the call. Garry Moss' filly is without a win on Turf but she wasn't too far away at Thirsk and compensation awaits. Joyful Sound showed improved form for the application of cheekpieces and Brian Ellison's charge is likely to have gained confidence for a recent success at Ayr. Dansili Dutch gets on well with her claiming rider and the mare seems set to give another fair account. Jay Kay has been revitalised by a switch to Karl Burke and connections attempt to strike again before the handicapper gets his say. Sky Crossing made all to register his first-ever victory on Turf at Redcar and he is still potentially well treated against his mark on artificial surfaces.
