Verdict

Amazing D'Azy started favourite here on her hurdling debut having shown promise in bumpers. But she was in trouble some way from home and has a bit to find with runner-up Reves D'Amour, though did finish ahead of Garnock and Katie's Massini. Siksika wasn't disgraced when fourth at Worcester last month but is held by Rising Teal on bumper form and Lucy Wadham's filly may have a future over timber. DOWN ACE has already won a point-to-point and two bumpers this year and starts off over hurdles at a sensible level. Her victory at Cheltenham in April was particularly impressive and she can land this.
