Irish Symphony deserves a change of luck after a couple of recent seconds at Uttoxeter but she's now had 20 career starts without managing to get her head in front. DOUBLE SILVER made steady progress last season, her best run coming when second at Warwick in March. Providing she handles the drop back to 2m, Fergal O'Brien's mare can open her account here. Bold Tara, Fimerello and Overpriced have all shown some ability but a bigger danger may be newcomer Counterparty, who was lightly raced on the Flat and won't find her lack of pace as big a handicap over timber.
