Verdict

Churchtown Love makes her debut under Rules having won a point-to-point at this time last year. Shuil Gealach won a fast ground bumper at Worcester last summer and is related to a couple of hurdle winners. She should go well, but ROSA FLEET is the obvious choice. She scored at Market Rasen earlier this month and is fancied to defy a penalty representing an in-form yard. The remainder are harder to fancy unless Taffy Dare has improved from her modest hurdles debut back in November.
