2/9
Well-established, classy mare, who has run with credit behind stablemate Constitution Hill in Fighting Fifth and Christmas Hurdle on her last two outings. Should get back to winning ways in the absence of that rival.

Completed her 4-timer at Cartmel in May and not disgraced when fourth in handicap there 7 months ago on her final run for Alan King. Needs to hit the ground running for her new handler.

12/1
Useful hurdler who posted a career best when impressively winning 10-runner handicap at Chepstow (16f) 20 days ago. Tongue strap on for 1st time. This is tougher but she can't be discounted.

Multiple hurdles winner, the latest at Newton Abbot (18.5f) in June. Things haven't gone to plan in that sphere since and pulled up on her belated chase debut at Wincanton last time. Others appeal more.

Useful on the Flat for Jedd O'Keeffe and made a winning start over hurdles at Sedgefield in October, 2021. Had a wind op and cheekpieces/tongue strap on when good fourth in 14f Salisbury handicap in June. This is a tough ask though.

Forecasts

Epatante (2/9), Martello Sky (6/1), Galice Macalo (12/1), Salsada (28/1), Finest View (40/1), Peltwell (150/1)

Verdict

EPATANTE is a class above her five rivals and with no Constitution Hill to contend with this time she can gain a deserved first victory of the season. Martello Sky appeals as the one to chase home Nicky Henderson's top-class mare, with Chepstow-scorer Galice Macalo next on the list.
