Miss Exhibitionist scored at Lingfield last time and should be thereabouts again now she's finally got her head in front. It was only a maiden hurdle that Smiling Lady won at Ffos Las and she's been well beaten since and Buxom was still beaten a distance despite finishing third at Uttoxeter last time. QUEEN'S GROVE broke her duck over a longer tip at this track a fortnight ago but this doesn't look any tougher despite an 8lb rise in the weights so Kevin Bishop's mare gets the nod.
