Money Money Money was a 76-rated handicapper on the Flat and McCoy takes the ride on her hurdling debut. But she's been off the track for more than a year so we'll stick with HOPSTRINGS, who wasn't winning out of turn at Bangor on Monday and has a useful 7lb claimer on board to negate her penalty. Lucys Girl and winning chaser Shantou Breeze are likely to be fighting it out for the minor placings.
