Mister Mayday has a bit to find on these terms but little separates the remainder on official ratings. Good Value showed no progress on last season's modest form at Windsor last time but ROSE KAZAN went close at Redcar when stepped up to today's trip. Marco Botti's filly gets the nod to open her account. Merry Me ended last year with a second at Lingfield though Charlie Wells may appreciate today's longer distance more given his half-sister scored over 1m4f on the Polytrack.
