Betting

Forecast

Frelia (11/4), Teeton Power (4/1), Queen Olivia (9/2), Dabinett Moon (13/2), Popaway (8/1), Palmaria (12/1), Roseyroo (14/1), Maybe Plenty (16/1), Martha's Benefit (25/1)

Verdict
Last year's winner Frelia hasn't been at her best since but is an obvious candidate to run well back here again, while Queen Olivia is an obvious candidate having run very well at Ludlow recently. However a chance is taken on TEETON POWER. The only contender in the field who is even slightly unexposed, she has been doing it well in point-to-points recently, as well as not disgracing herself in a bumper over a trip much too short for her. She should fare very well on hunter chase debut.
  1. Teeton Power
  2. Queen Olivia
  3. Frelia
