Run Ructions Run just failed to follow up her earlier win over 2m1f here when beaten only a nose at Catterick. Another bold bid is expected from her but FLEMENTIME is just preferred receiving 7lb. She made a promising start to hurdling when runner-up at Uttoxeter and any improvement should see her go very close in this. Gold Show may well reverse latest running with Run Ructions Run but Southwell bumper winner Falcon's Present made a less impressive hurdling bow and may need more time to get her act together.
