Verdict

A fascinating race that is very likely to throw up a contender for the Cheltenham Mares Novice Hurdle. A tentative vote is cast in favour of Nicky Henderson's new recruit COUNTISTER who is being spoken of in glowing terms. She was high class in bumpers in France. Cap Soleil is another smart recruit from bumpers who could do little more than win all three races in that sphere. Dame Rose was yet another good bumper horse and she has the benefit of a recent win over timber as a notable advantage.
