Forecast

Asthuria (13/8), Barra (7/2), Good Thyne Tara (9/2), Pravalaguna (6/1), The Green Lady (10/1), Awayinthewest (12/1), Strike Is Back (20/1), Petuna (20/1), Ringside Humour (25/1), Miss Mardan (40/1), Nicat's Benefit (50/1)

Verdict
BARRA's runner-up effort behind Let's Dance at Cheltenham would appear to set the standard on form and she may have just been found wanting at the longer trip last time after travelling smoothly throughout. Pravalaguna has been deserted by Ruby Walsh in favour of Asthuria but the former is still likely to have plenty improvement in her and she was travelling well last time out. Ringside Humour may provide some each-way value and she shouldn't be ruled out if she can transfer all her ability on the Flat to this sphere.
  1. Barra
  2. Pravalaguna
  3. Ringside Humour
