Race Verdict

This looks far from straightforward as a decent case can be advanced for all six but KYKATE, out of her depth last time behind Kells Belle at Cheltenham, will give a good account in this grade if delivering her best. Trip and ground suit and she may just have more improvement in her than her rivals. Janet's Pearl is interesting off her current mark but hasn't been seen since finishing a remote third at Sedgefield behind Triumph Hurdle winner Countrywide Flame. The market should reflect stable confidence on this return to action. Leith Walk and Allbarkanobite complete the shortlist.

Selection: Kykate        Danger: Janet's Pearl        Alternative: Leith Walk
