911-4OR: 141BFD
8/1

Five from 12 over hurdles for this yard before embarking on a chasing campaign this season which has resulted in three straight seconds. Fully effective at this trip and return to hurdles should suit but penalty leaves her vulnerable.

Three time winner over hurdles, the latest coming first time out at Wincanton this season. Hung left latest blowing her chance in a Kempton Listed race but still managed second 1¾L ahead of Culture De Sivola. Big chance if keeping a straight line.

Three-time winner over fences including latest when fairly bolting up in a Mares only Listed handicap at Newbury. First hurdle start for over a year but form latest appeals plenty and that success remains trainer's only runner in UK this season.

Betting

Forecast

Magic Of Light (15/8), If You Say Run (5/2), Culture De Sivola (4/1), Petticoat Tails (7/1), Jester Jet (8/1), Shimmer's Rock (66/1)

Verdict

Safe to say this is not a vintage Grade Two contest but MAGIC OF LIGHT appeals plenty based on her very comfortable Newbury chase win latest which was Jessica Harrington's only runner on these shores this season. Back over hurdles a similar effort here would give her exceptional claims so she gets the vote. If You Say Run is certainly very talented but not the easiest of rides so all will depend on how Harry Cobden is able to deliver her challenge. Culture De Sivola is closely matched with the latter and this highly progressive mare also should go well.
