Feisty Lass only landed a seller here 11 days ago but will be suited by the step-up in trip and receives weight all round despite being 1lb out of the handicap. This is tougher but she's definitely shortlisted and could prove notably better than selling grade. Everaard returns from a break for Philip Kirby after finishing fourth of eight at Wetherby behind Savant Bleu. He is a good ground winner but his last three successes have all come on terrain with cut. He's one to note all the same but GREEN LIGHTNING hacked up on his debut for Peter Bowen here last time after being claimed out of a seller. With the stable in such stellar form he is taken to maintain his winning run and complete the hat-trick despite topweight.
