NO PUSHOVER has started favourite for both starts to date and hasn't been beaten far in either. This looks a bit easier and Nicky Henderson's mare should finally get her head in front. Etheridge Annie is likely to be her chief market rival having run well on debut at Kempton at the start of the month. Winning pointer Our Cat was beaten 40 lengths at Huntingdon, however, and Izzy Piccolina may have more scope. Tyre Hill Lady will probably be the best of the newcomers.
