Verdict

Bumper winners Amber Cloud and Dante's Frolic could easily figure here but it's difficult to be as optimistic about the chances of Dolly Royal and Scarlet Ruby. LA CALINDA was second at Sedgefield on her hurdling debut and probably met decent opposition when fourth at Uttoxeter subsequently. She has less to do today and can get off the mark with Little Glenshee apparently failing to get home in two previous tries over this trip and a bit more exposed than most.
