Verdict

Sudden Wish could be improving and kept on well for pressure when third to Down Ace at Lingfield three weeks ago. The sharper track here might help while Java Rose won a 1m4f maiden on the Flat and has experience in bumpers. Her yard is still in good form but it will be disappointing if GREAT OAK can't overcome her penalty as she's already won three times over fences and once over hurdles. Her latest third to Mini Muck, who has won twice since, at Bangor was another decent effort. Resourceful Miss was placed twice on the Polytrack last month and has also made the frame in bumpers but she's been tailed off in both previous tries over hurdles.
