Forecast

Kupatana (11/8), Just A Thought (5/2), Lady Of Lamanver (4/1), Sensulano (6/1), Loveherandleaveher (8/1), All Currencies (16/1), Annie Angel (25/1), Blackdown Hills (25/1), Belle Empress (33/1), Inch Lala (66/1), Cangodemayo (66/1), Petronella Manners (66/1), Jolie Francine (100/1), Kiwi Myth (100/1), Welcome Polly (200/1), Westerberry (200/1)

Verdict
The pair with penalties here All Currencies and Lady Of Lamanver have shown a good level of form and very much set a decent standard with the former having shown up well in a Listed race and the latter having finished second over C&D in the 2016 Mares’ Final. But like the other novice race on the card Nicky Henderson holds a strong hand here with two Irish point-to-point winners making their debut over hurdles. KUPATANA is the pick of the pair having cost £120,000 and winning impressively on her only start so far. Loveherandleaveher should also run well having also been successful in point-to-points. Belle Empress and Sensulano are two others to note here in the market in an event that should provide plenty of pointers for the future.
  1. Kupatana
  2. Lady Of Lamanver
  3. Loveherandleaveher
