Forecast

Question Of Faith (13/8), Secret Escape (5/2), Champagne To Go (10/3), Russian Royale (15/2), Reivers Lodge (14/1), Keady Lady (16/1), Ayla's Emperor (20/1), Slipper Satin (50/1), Roberttown Rose (66/1)

Verdict
It's been a long time between hurdles outings for QUESTION OF FAITH, but she is a winner in this sphere who has improved markedly on the Flat since, and she is taken to make the most of the weight she receives from Secret Escape and Champagne To Go. The others are hard to make a case for.
  1. Question Of Faith
  2. Secret Escape
  3. Champagne To Go
