510-12OR: 115
1/8

Warwick bumper winner (May 2018); runner-up on both starts over hurdles, including when staying on, but held close home by Birds Of Prey (Paul Nicholls) in a 2m3f+ Taunton novices' (good); sets the clear form standard.

510-12OR:
6/1

Southwell bumper winner (October 2018); very inexperienced on hurdles debut at Doncaster, but much better despite finishing last of three to Millarville at Southwell (2m4f+, good) 19-days ago; the clear forecast option.

610-12OR:
40/1

Sulamani mare; didn't show much in a couple of runs in bumpers; not jump well and soon detached on hurdles debut at Fontwell (2m6f, soft) in March; very difficult to consider as a realistic contender.

Betting

Forecast

Barbados Blue (1/8), Prophets Prayer (6/1), Viking Ruby (40/1)

Verdict

Nicky Henderson has found the perfect race for BARBADOS BLUE to break the maiden tag over hurdles at the third time of asking. She rallied when chasing home Birds Of Prey at Taunton (2m3f+), should be suited by stepping up in trip (as a sister to the 3m winner More Bucks) and can hold all of the aces over her sole realistic rival Prophets Prayer.
  1. Barbados Blue
  2. Prophets Prayer
  3. Viking Ruby
