Shershewill is consistent enough in moderate company and should be suited by this step-up in trip. Kates Benefit is the definite form pick on her fine run behind Marasonnien at Naas last January. That came in-between two bumper victories and she is an obvious threat to all though the long absence has to be a worry. Jeunopse is still a maiden over hurdles after 18 starts though she did manage a win on the Flat. She finished just behind ANNIE OAKLEY when they occupied the minor placings over the C&D last time and the latter, who was showing her best form to date, is expected to confirm the form and take this.
