TARA ROSE isn't very big so her double penalty is a concern but she showed a nice turn of foot to quicken clear in a valuable mares' novices' handicap at Cheltenham last week and may have the class to complete her hat-trick. Bumper winner Old Dreams may do better now tackling the larger obstacles but Smiling Lady is probably best watched having become disappointing over hurdles. Queen Of Mantua also has a bit to prove having unseated her rider when favourite at Wetherby 11 days ago, though makes more appeal than Entertain Me.
