In depth

Verdict

Rathvawn Belle was very disappointing when only second at Hexham on her hurdles bow, though still finished ahead of Jordans Day. Hellesbelles and Retrieve The Stick have both been placed in bumpers but BRIJOMI QUEEN had the better form in that sphere. She did finish well behind Rathvawn Belle in a Listed contest at Aintree in April but may have had enough for the season and can reverse that form over timber.
