Moon Melody was in good form prior to pulling up at Wetherby last time. Mardood has been below par so far this season but is well handicapped now as a result and fitted with a visor for the first time today. Miss Tarantella finished second off this mark on her latest start at Newcastle and Zero Six Zoo's recent C&D fourth was his best effort so far over hurdles. But this better ground will suit I'M YOUR MAN and Evelyn Slack's 12-year-old, only a pound higher than when successful over C&D last season, is taken to regain the winning thread.
