Stoutly-bred mare who won bumper at Uttoxeter on debut. Runner-up next 2 starts, though only a remote fifth on hurdles bow at Worcester on return in July. Step up in trip will suit after wind op.

Forecasts

Speech Bubble (15/8), Doyen La Lutte (7/2), Whisky Express (5/1), Russian Rumour (11/2), Highland Glory (9/1), Harry's Hottie (14/1), The Trampolinist (22/1), Flaherty (40/1), The Real Jet (40/1), So Socksy (66/1), Simply Supreme (80/1)

Verdict

SPEECH BUBBLE showed plenty in bumpers last season, including when runner-up in a listed event at Sandown, and is taken to make a winning start over hurdles over a trip that should suit. Doyen La Lutte made an encouraging debut over hurdles when third at Exeter 2 weeks ago and should improve, while bumper-winner Whisky Express is another interesting hurdling debutante.
