In depth

Verdict

Rydalis scored over timber at Exeter in May and has a recent pipe-opener under her belt and Sapphire Rouge has claims on her best form over hurdles. Annimation is another with a chance if taking to the larger obstacles while Lights Of Broadway wasn't disgraced when fourth over fences at Leicester back in March and should improve. Likewise GLEN COUNTESS, who finished a respectable second on her chasing bow at Uttoxeter in June and gets the nod on her return to action.
