Verdict

Alasi finished more than six lengths ahead of BABY SHINE over 2m at Wetherby last month and the pair meet again on identical terms. However, Lucy Wadham's six-year-old should be suited by 3m around here and can have her revenge. She's the one to beat on her third to Simonsig in a Grade 1 at Aintree in April. Knockfierna races over hurdles for the first time since May last year but she wouldn't be without a chance on her best form while Miss Milbourne is an improving sort who has already won over the trip. Kells Belle beat Kaffie and Annimation at Sandown in January but is no certainty to confirm the form on worse terms with Kim Bailey's mare and lacks a recent run. Alpine Breeze and Wild Rhubarb may be out of their depth in this company.
