Tartiflette can race off the same mark as when only beaten three-quarters-of-a-length by Fire Ship over C&D nine days ago. Ed McMahon's filly has to go on the short-list while there's no apparent reason why dual Polytrack winner Delft won't handle the switch to Turf and she may still be on a decent mark. Shamaal Nibras looked the likely winner at Doncaster last week until hanging badly inside the final furlong. He's also entitled to respect but OUR BOY JACK will appreciate the return to 7f having finished second at Leicester last time and could be the value here with a 5lb claimer on board. Cockney Dancer may need this but should be noted for future reference.
