Betting

Forecast

Lady Samback (13/8), Iconic Belle (5/2), Steak And Spuds (5/1), West Coast Lass (8/1), Fillydelphia (12/1), Wise Coco (16/1), Missesgeejay (33/1)

Verdict
A very winnable mares' handicap hurdle in which both the recent Carlisle winner Lady Samback and the prominent-racing Iconic Belle merit plenty of respect. However, it could be worth taking a real chance on the R Mike Smith-trained STEAK AND SPUDS. She is a three-time PTP winner who showed up well for a long way before weakening over 3m here last month. Dropped 5lb in the weights and considerably in trip, it's noteworthy that the North's leading rider Brian Hughes now takes over in the saddle.
  1. Steak And Spuds
  2. Lady Samback
  3. Iconic Belle
