MAYFAIR MUSIC had Fairytale Theatre eight lengths behind when fifth in a Listed bumper at Cheltenham last month. Though both are expected to improve now tackling hurdles, there seems no reason why Nicky Henderson's mare, who is more stoutly bred, won't confirm placings here. Land Of Vic and Vilja flanked Fairytale Theatre at Cheltenham and also look held. Barry Geraghty's mount can also beat Dreams And Songs, very disappointing at Ludlow last time, while Fountains Mary is tried in blinkers after a modest fourth at Towcester. Bilidn has won five times on the Flat but has had her problems this year and only managed one run, in which she was tailed off.
