BONNET'S VINO has little to beat in this and should come out best. She's made the frame in all three subsequent starts since scoring at Catterick in December and Pam Sly's mare has much stronger form than Mootabar. The latter finished runner-up at Carlisle last month and Another Dimension ran into a place at Catterick earlier, though was still beaten a long way. Foot The Bill can race off a lower mark back over hurdles, but it's hard to find any recent form to recommend the remainder unless Allez Cool improves now handicapping for the first time.
