811-12OR: 142
5/2

Uber-consistent mare gained deserves success when winning Huntingdon Listed race two starts back beating the subsequent Grand National second Magic Of Light. Unseated since but remains on a good handicap mark although 2m a bare minimum.

11/4

Made all in back-to-back successes at Warwick over both 2m4f and 2m before coming unstuck there latest under a double penalty and on softer ground. 2m may well be her best trip and expectant of a bold bid here on handicap bow.

3/1

Won twice over hurdles in October and for the first time over fences latest at Huntingdon. 3lb rise for that comfortable score quite reasonable but first time over the bare 2m here.

11/2

Having a terrific season with five wins from seven starts North of the border, the last four at Kelso. Up 6lb here so task tougher especially in this warmer contest but stiff 2m here should be ideal.

Now almost three years since her lone success and four starts since moving to this yard continue the apparent trend of regression. Hard to fancy.

11/1

Deservedly got off the mark at the 19th time of asking at Leicester two starts back before running to a similar level when second at Hereford. 7lb out of the handicap here however so unlikely to make the frame.

Betting

Forecast

Happy Diva (5/2), Whatduhavtoget (11/4), Pique Rock (3/1), Alizee De Janeiro (11/2), Northern Beau (11/1), Cotton Jenny (16/1)

Verdict

With the trip a doubt for a couple of her main rivals WHATDUHAVTOGET can get back to winning ways with this handicap arguably more favourable than when struggling under a double penalty latest. Happy Diva has become a real favourite this season and is fully expected to make another bold bid despite the trip. Pique Rock looks best of the rest.
