MAY HAY has done nothing wrong in her two starts to date and her experience can see her home. She had Montjen around six lengths behind when runner-up to Montana Belle over 1m5f at Newbury and should confirm the form though the latter should get closer. Alan Swinbank has two representatives with Molly Cat, a daughter of Dylan Thomas out of a Flat winner, likely to prove the pick. Bulas Belle showed the benefit of her opening run with an encouraging effort at Newcastle where she stayed on strongly over that 1m6f and will appreciate today's longer trip.
