HO YAM LAY is dropped in class and could be the answer to this seller getting 5lb from Tagtale. Michael Bell's filly has been well beaten in both starts so far but still has more scope than Richard Fahey's daughter of Tagula, who tackles fast ground for the first time and disappointed last time in a Redcar claimer. Baileys Pursuit's third here three weeks ago came over an extra furlong but she still looks the pick of the remainder.
