Verdict

FLORAL SPINNER earns full marks for consistency and deserves to get her head in front. Chris Davies claims a valuable 7lb and she may have the edge in fitness over the returning Miss Ballantyne, though Nicky Henderson's mare is undoubtedly a danger on her second at Worcester last summer. Vinnieslittle Lamb has won a point-to-point and was second on her hurdles debut at Towcester last month while Fairey Delta won a bumper at Uttoxeter last March, though hasn't been seen since. Katnapping and Upbeat Cobbler have shown a glimmer of ability and look the pick of the remainder.
