Some of these haven't shown much to date and may do better in handicaps. RED TYKE is more exposed than most but has already shown ability to handle soft ground when scoring at Ayr over 7f last autumn and didn't do too badly next time at Southwell. His yard have started the season really well and he gets the nod over Hurriya. The latter showed little in three maiden outings before improving last time with a mid-division finish at Lingfield, beaten only three lengths staying on steadily. A little more improvement for the move to turf would certainly see her involved. Lady Advocate only won a seller at Ripon last August and faces a tough task giving weight all round, whilst Rosie's Lady showed bits and pieces of form last term. Keep an eye on Lady Kashaan in the market as she should do better now moved into handicap company.
