611-5OR: 102CD
33/1

Won a similar contest here in November over C&D (good), but has struggled in a handicap or in this company under a penalty since. More needed.

511-5OR:
1/2

Changed hands for £50,000 in December, shortly after winning an Irish point (fourth start). Made a good start under rules, winning decisively against mares' at Fontwell (2m1f, soft) last month. Big chance under her penalty.

611-5OR:
10/1

Bumper winner in 2017, but not seen much action since. Back to winning ways at Fontwell (2m5f, heavy) last time, but that was at odds-on in a match. Tongue-tied here, but much more needed under her penalty.

710-12OR: 116BFC
2/1

Won a good ground bumper here on her rules debut 13-months ago. Has shown promise several times over hurdles, without winning. Has been taken out due to testing ground before, so conditions not ideal, but much respected if taking her chance.

510-12OR:
100/1

Not devoid of promise on debut in a Stratford bumper (good) last July, but last of 10 on her hurdles debut at Leicester in January. Much more needed.

Betting

Forecast

The Cull Bank (1/2), Queen's Magic (2/1), Urca De Lima (10/1), Kentford Mallard (33/1), Shaw's Dilemma (100/1)

Verdict

Given that Queen's Magic keeps finding something too good and there are clearly also concerns about her ability on soft ground, the selection has to be THE CULL BANK, who won well on debut, is unexposed and taken to defy her penalty. Kentford Mallard can chase them home.
  1. The Cull Bank
  2. Queen's Magic
  3. Kentford Mallard
