Forecasts

Canoodle (9/4), Verdana Blue (7/2), Miss Night Owl (7/2), Ruby Yeats (7/1), Nightfly (7/1), Katy P (14/1), Ducloyne Lady (50/1), Little Dotty (50/1), Sue Be It (66/1), A Montmartre (100/1), Lady Longshot (100/1), Sauvignon (100/1), La Madrina (125/1), Brean Golf Birdie (150/1), Barra Hooley (200/1)

Verdict

Verdana Blue was well supported on her stable debut last month only to fall at the first, so she is worth a market check here. Ruby Yeats caused a stir when winning for a new trainer last month, at the primary expense of MISS NIGHT OWL. The latter may be able to turn around that form now on her second start in this sphere. Canoodle's clear second at Uttoxeter puts her in the picture while Ducloyne Lady is an interesting newcomer to hurdling. 1. Miss Night Owl 2. Verdana Blue 3. Canoodle
