Verdict

UMADACHAR has a penalty to contend with having scored over a longer trip at this track last month. However, her experience should stand her in good stead as today's main rivals have something to prove over timber. Dual bumper winner Too Generous was fancied on her hurdling bow at Bangor but put in a poor round of jumping and can only improve while July's Lingfield bumper winner Magic Vixen makes her hurdling debut on her return to action. Shantou Breeze has a couple of decent placed efforts to her name on faster ground but Old Dreams looks a bigger threat after her recent second at Folkestone.
