Verdict

Market Rasen bumper winner Forever Present will have her supporters here while Lady From Geneva and Mrs Peachey didn't do a great deal wrong at Towcester and Ludlow respectively last time. Easy Worcester winner Young Victoria will make a bold bid to defy her penalty but BALLINAHOW STAR arrives a with a bit of a reputation earned in the point-to-point field in Ireland. Jeremy Scott starts her off at a realistic level under Rules and, suited by soft ground, she can come out on top.
