Progressed plenty since Uttoxeter win and after chasing home Posh Trish and the smart Lady Buttons she delivered a career best when a close fifth of 22 in Mares Novice at the Festival beating a host of these rivals, a repeat here may suffice.

Won well at Ludlow (2m5f) and Hereford (2m5½f) before coming unstuck in Sandown Grade Two latest where she was beaten 22L into fifth of six. Likes to dictate matters and left hand track may suit better but others have stronger form.

Now seems to have sorted out her jumping errors and followed a make all success at Newbury by finishing an excellent third of 14 there latest in a competitive handicap. Tougher task here however and danger her and Liberty Bella take each other on.

Comes here very much as the unknown quantity of the race after facile victories at Fontwell and Plumpton, her only two starts under rules. This will obviously be a major step up in class but could very easily be up to the task.

Betting

Forecast

Indefatigable (5/4), The Cull Bank (6/4), Posh Trish (9/4), Diamond Gait (5/1), Our Dot's Baby (13/2), Liberty Bella (10/1)

Verdict

Although she was 11 times the price at Cheltenham INDEFATIGABLE finished well ahead of Posh Trish and with the same weight terms here there is no obvious reason to suggest a reversal so Paul Webber's progressive mare gets the nod to confirm the form. Posh Trish would be feared more if there was the threat of an easy lead having made all three times but both Liberty Bella and Our Dot's Baby generally race prominent too so that seems unlikely. The Cull Bank is in the 'could be anything category' after two easy wins and she doesn't come here on the back of a hard race like the top two do.
