Verdict

SHE RANKS ME is clear on official ratings and should take care of today's opposition. She beat a couple of previous winners at Newbury three weeks ago and can defy a penalty in this company. Dancingtilmidnight is unbeaten over hurdles and looks next best ahead of Alder Mairi, who got off the mark over timber when scoring at Lingfield last month. The 2m7f at Kelso proved beyond Little Glenshee last time and Uttoxeter winner Scholastica is preferred to both her and Hannah Jacques.
