9/4

Struggling from halfway on chasing debut/seasonal reappearance at Uttoxeter (2m6½f, soft) four weeks ago; that said, the winner of that race followed up at Newbury and this is undoubtedly an easier assignment despite the burden of 12st 5lb.

Yet to win over fences (0-6), although did run a fair race at Uttoxeter (2m6½f, soft) in January - finished 12L third to Skewiff; handicap mark easing ever so slightly on return from a 203-day absence.

Productive over hurdles during the early months of the calendar year, winning on soft ground at Ayr (2m5½f) before hitting the frame on her next two starts; still early days over fences (0-2) - pulled up over the summer at Perth (3m).

With Michael Scudamore when finishing last of three in this contest last year - beaten 26L by stablemate Dawnieriver; switched to Ben Pauling thereafter; pleasing second on seasonal reappearance (debut for this trainer) at Worcester (2m7f, gd/soft).

Betting

Forecast

Royal Claret (9/4), Talkofgold (11/4), Sheneededtherun (4/1), Angels Antics (11/2), Kitty Fisher (6/1)

Verdict

Just the five runners but a reasonably tricky puzzle to solve with the likes of Royal Claret and Angels Antics carrying plenty of weight (12st 5lb) for the forecast testing conditions. Therefore, in the hope and expectation that she fares better than in this race 12 months ago, a chance is taken on the Sam Allwood-trained, Charlie Todd-ridden SHENEEDEDTHERUN. With various trainers in recent times (including Michael Scudamore and Ben Pauling) she posted a perfectly respectable seasonal reappearance/stable debut at Worcester (2m7f) and can hopefully build positively upon that here.
