Verdict

Hexham winner Julia Too ran a shocker at Carlisle next time but Little Glenshee won easily over 2m4f at Newcastle last month and Golden Sparkle deserves a change of luck having been placed in all five of her starts over timber, though is a little one-paced. It could be worth taking a chance on LUCEMATIC, who is making her hurdling debut but did win on her racecourse debut in a Newcastle bumper in January and was last seen in a Listed race at Sandown. She Will Rock You is preferred to Pop Socks of the others.
