811-12OR: 112
5/2

Ended last season with best run to date when a close second at Perth on handicap debut. Good second again on reappearance at Ayr last month on heavy ground when cruising to the front before tiring. Leading player.

3/1

2¾L behind Paper Roses at Ayr last month and ran well at Sedgefield the time before also. Seems to be on the up but Paper Roses should strip fitter today so unlikely to turn things round with that rival.

Won at Stratford in May and ran well subsequently at Aintree before below par sixth after a break at Sedgefield (Wide Awake second). Expecting improved effort now with champion jockey booked but heavy ground an unknown.

20/1

11 time winner over hurdles who particularly enjoys Hexham (six wins there). Not beaten a rival in last three races with a last and two pulled-ups so at present she is hard to fancy.

4/1

Behind Paper Roses when fifth in final start of last campaign and again behind that rival when fourth on return at Ayr. No obvious reason for turnaround but her win in a 20 runner race at Navan before was impressive.

Three time hurdle winner hasn't shown her best form I testing conditions in the past so that the biggest worry today. Over two years now since she last won and hard to see her changing that today.

1110-11OR: 97C
10/1

Won over 2m1f here in April but lost way somewhat since and was pulled up on return at Kelso in October. Limited evidence over 2m4f but probably stays and only 2lb higher than course win so could see better effort.

14/1

Run poorly in all three starts this term and was pulled up at Ayr last month with the second, third and fourth there re-opposing today. Visor added and jockey booking of note but hard to be confident at present.

Betting

Forecast

Paper Roses (5/2), Wide Awake (3/1), Our Valentina (4/1), Black Tulip (6/1), Catchthemoonlight (10/1), Minnie Milan (12/1), Theatre Act (14/1), Beyondtemptation (20/1)

Verdict

All roads here lead to PAPER ROSES after her excellent reappearance second at Ayr and she has the beating of several rivals on that run and her second last season at Perth. Wide Awake was closest of those behind her at Ayr and she remains on the upgrade so can't be dismissed. Black Tulip is of interest with Richard Johnson on board and she could prove the biggest danger to Paper Roses if handling this ground.
