Glens Harmony (4/9), Canelie (5/2), Juliespaddockwalk (12/1), Minnies Secret (16/1), Tara Dylan (20/1), Manger Et Trotter (33/1), Jamies Sister (33/1), Be My Westerner (40/1), End Play (50/1), Jennys Grey (50/1), Heather Moth (50/1), Queen Ella (50/1), Suit Her (50/1), Flamingo's Court (66/1), Goodnightngodbless (66/1), The Diary Keeper (66/1), Destination Debbie (66/1), Rhyme And Rythm (66/1), Blue Lobster (100/1), Glamorous Gold (100/1), Moll Dote (100/1)

Verdict
Canelie sets the standard on what she has achieved in her native France and here last term, but it was something of a disappointment she couldn't open her account in four attempts over hurdles. She is back from a layoff now and cedes race fitness to the potentially smart hurdling debutante GLENS HARMONY. Representing the most powerful handler in the land, she comes here having run well in a Galway bumper off her layoff and, with fitness on her side, this sister to the Cheltenham Festival winner Glens Melody is taken to get off to the perfect start over timber. The likes of Minnies Secret, Glamorous Gold and Tara Dylan are noted for the minor placings.
