Madame Mirasol clearly took to the Fibresand at Southwell a fortnight ago when easily landing a handicap but the assessor may have overreacted with an 18lb hike in the weights. YAJAMILA is also a recent winner at Southwell and she makes more appeal as she steps up in trip today. Classy Lassy has been placed in soft ground at York while Red Tide and Shirocco Passion could also figure if handling today's surface. Mount Cheiron won a Catterick seller last month but will find this tougher.
