A chance is taken here on ETANIA, even though she is 4lb out of the handicap. She should appreciate the better ground and is unexposed in comparison to her rivals, most of whom are conceding plenty of weight. Definitely Glad has questions to answer at present but Fine Moment did win a maiden hurdle over course and distance 10 days ago and should make a bold bid to follow up. She makes more appeal than Bollin Judith, who has lost her way, and Epee Celeste, who needs further.
