Verdict

The only one of these to have won a race over hurdles, CASCAYE holds the stand-out piece of form with her win last time out at Exeter, and looks to still have plenty of improvement in her. As long as she proves she can handle what are likely to be testing conditions, she can defy a penalty in a field where many simply don't look up to winning a non-handicap novice event. Multigifted looks the most likely to upset the selection, given her fair form in low quality races on the Flat and her eye-catching run on debut, where jumping errors stopped her finishing even closer to the winner. Smaoineamh Alainn seemed to be improving all through several starts in bumpers and looks to be the next best option on her hurdling debut.
  1. Cascaye
  2. Multigifted
  3. Smaoineamh Alainn
