Quiet Appeal scored at Wolverhampton before running a shocker last time and stablemate Henry George takes a big step up in trip for his handicap debut after his latest fifth over 7f. Rocco Breeze and Blue Pencil both posted decent efforts over 1m3f here on their first start in handicaps and are worthy of consideration though LADY MANDY is a similar type and she's preferred. Richard Fahey's filly was doing her best work at the finish when second over 1m2f here three weeks ago and looks up to scoring off today's mark with further progress likely.
