FINAZ found 7f in soft ground beyond him at Redcar last time but his earlier second over today's trip at York is the best form on offer and he can open his account in this lesser grade. Tricky Madam finished third on her debut at Redcar and is another who will appreciate the drop back in distance here. By contrast, Moss Quito went backwards over 6f last time after showing steady progress over the minimum trip and Wordsaplenty has shown better form than the so far modest efforts of Windsor Rose.
