Jazzy Lady came good again at Lingfield on her latest start and is not out of this despite a further 5lb rise. But SIR CHARLIE KUNZ is less exposed and will be suited by today's longer trip after finishing third over a mile on his recent reappearance. That outing should give him the edge over Aramadyh, who won a maiden race over a shorter trip here back in October and also looks likely to stay middle-distances. Lesha's best efforts so far have been on the Fibresand, while handicap debutant Final Countdown makes more appeal than Howz The Family, a winner over 7f here last month.
