In depth

Verdict

Dun See Dee and Wishes And Stars would both have a big chance on last season's best form but neither have had a recent run and the former has switched stables since her last run. BALLINAHOW STAR, twice a winner between the flags, was only beaten a length-and-a-half by Young Victoria on her hurdling debut at Exeter last month. That appears the stand-out recent form and she can go one better here though Floral Spinner is improving with experience and was beaten less than a length at Folkestone last time. Lady Sinatra showed promise in bumpers last season and could find a small race over hurdles once she's gained some experience.
