There may be more to come from Lady Charisma, who finished a place ahead of Queen Olivia over course and distance earlier in the month. But BORN TO BENEFIT's latest second at Wetherby was a perfectly respectable effort and Fergal O'Brien's Irish import can open her account today. Georgea and Seas Of Green may be best of the rest if translating their bumper form to hurdles but Cantony and Tara Muck both suffered heavy falls at Uttoxeter last time.
