The four-year-old Marju's Quest would be interesting if the ground got any quicker. Tangolan hasn't shown much so far for Phil Middleton but was placed twice in Ireland last year and Don Padeja showed his turn wasn't far away when only beaten half-a-length by Mandy's Boy at Ludlow last month. Sleep In First is well treated on his chase form but is 0-17 over hurdles. FAITH JICARO had a pipe-opener on the Polytrack earlier this month. She has the past form to suggest she'll go well here and is preferred to the consistent Focail Maith on today's terms.
