Forecast

Cut The Mustard (8/13), Black Tears (11/8), Emily Moon (11/4), Champayne Lady (5/1), Bluegrass Princess (16/1), Just Klass (20/1), Wetbehindtheears (25/1), Unlaoised (50/1), Roxys Holly (100/1), Rathnaleen Tou (100/1), Rock On Bennie (100/1)

Verdict
A couple of Cheltenham festival runners take their chance here with the Gordon Elliott/Davy Russell combination on BLACK TEARS taken to follow up on her fourth of 22 beaten 2L in the Grade 2 Mares' Novices' hurdle, losing second in the final 75 yards. The five-year-old will have to see off the challenge of the Willie Mullins-trained Cut The Mustard, beaten 12L in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham and the Jessica Harrington-trained Emily Moon who should go well with a clear round.
