QUANTUM OF SOLACE got off the mark for Fergal O'Brien at the second attempt at Perth and despite now up to a career-high mark over hurdles, she is backed to find the required improvement for the handler who has a knack of driving handicappers up the ratings. Mitcd, a competitor in Cartmel's void race when last seen over timber, tuned up for this with a win on the Flat and has to be considered. Ilovemints and Cautorillo both have the potential to get involved at the finish too.
QUANTUM OF SOLACE did the job well at Perth last month and a 7 lb rise may not be enough to prevent her from following up here. Recent Flat winners Methag and Mitcd rate the main dangers.
