In depth

Verdict

Dual bumper winner TOUBEERA attempted to make all in a Listed contest at Sandown but was starting to feel the pinch when blundering at the second last. She's likely to start a short-priced favourite here and should gain her first success. Pollystone has definitely improved with racing and produced a decent effort in a Polytrack bumper at Lingfield in December. Her pedigree suggests she'll do well over hurdles so she must be a threat while Gulfport is another who should take to jumping obstacles and will be better for her run in a Wetherby bumper last month. Icy Quiet didn't show much on the level but her trainer does well with similar types and she's one to note.
