Winner of a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m2f on good ground at Exeter last time out. Penalised for that success and capable of running well once more.

Running well in defeat since winning on the Flat at Les Landes (1m4f, good) in August. Interesting contender on her return to hurdling.

Betting

Forecast

Misty Bloom (2/5), Mrs Burbidge (9/2), Kilcara (8/1), Hoover Fever (11/1)

Verdict

MISTY BLOOM is taken to defy a penalty for her recent Exeter victory and in the process register a second victory over hurdles in this mares contest. The selection can get the better of top weight Kilcara who is open to improvement switched to handicaps for the first time while third can go to Mrs Burbidge.
  1. Misty Bloom
  2. Kilcara
  3. Mrs Burbidge
