Verdict

Nicky Henderson hurdlers always command respect here and Sunshade is no different. It took her rider half a mile to pull her up after impressing on her Fakenham debut and if that energy can be harnessed she may turn out to be very useful. COCKNEY WREN sets a high standard in this having finished third in Listed company on her hurdling debut. Her yard continue to churn out winners and it will take something useful to beat her. Oscar Rose looks the pick of the rest based on her bumper form and hurdling experience.
  1. Cockney Wren
  2. Sunshade
  3. Oscar Rose
