811-5OR: 142D
10/1

Strong staying mare successful at up to 3m4f. Pulled up in the Welsh National latest but likely prepping for the Grand National here in which she finished midfield 12-months ago. This trip surely far too sharp and gives weight to all.

710-11OR: 135D
6/1

Fairly bolted up over 2m4f at Cheltenham in December but disappointed next at Huntingdon in a Listed contest over the same trip where she pulled-up. Form of Cheltenham success would give her leading claims but last run a concern.

810-11OR: 129
7/1

Moderate strike rate overall over fences but rarely runs a bad race. Second at Thurles in a 2m5½f handicap latest another sound effort but steps up in class now so anything more than a place would be a surprise.

710-7OR:
66/1

Three-race maiden of a bumper, hurdle and chase. Tailed off latest over fences and likely to fare little better here.

710-7OR:
150/1

Pulled up in both points-to-point and a beginners chase won by Pravalaguna at 150/1. Should be similar odds here.

610-7OR: 125
6/1

Wins at Thurles (2m2f) and Fairyhouse (2m4f) this season before coming unstuck latest in a Warwick Listed race. Certainly capable of getting involved here but more needed to win.

710-7OR:
8/13

Smart dual hurdles scorer fairly bolted up on chasing debut at Limerick over 2m3½f where she jumped and travelled like a smart mare. Can only improve for that experience and expected to take this step up in class in her stride.

Betting

Forecast

Pravalaguna (8/13), Mrs Lovett (6/1), Synopsis (6/1), Teacher's Pet (7/1), Baie Des Iles (10/1), Echoes Of Family (66/1), Miss Titanic (150/1)

Verdict

This looks a good opportunity for PRAVALAGUNA to make it two-from-two over fences for Willie Mullins and Paul Townend. She impressed at Limerick and this in honesty looks a substandard race for the grade so she is confidently put forward to follow up. Gordon Elliott duo Synopsis and Mrs Lovett look best of the rest although neither ran to their best last time out.
