Forecast

Henrietta Bell (4/7), Giving Back (11/8), Celtic Sally (16/1), My Mums Posh (25/1), Miss Brooklyn (33/1), Mandarin Princess (66/1), Harbour Sunrise (66/1)

Verdict
Given that Alan King’s mare Giving Back was deemed good enough to run in a Grade 2 mares’ bumper at Aintree it was rather disappointing to see her well beaten on her hurdling debut. Her two bumper wind came on AW surfaces and there may be a doubt about her ability on turf and it may well be safer to side with HENRIETTA BELL. She looked as though she could do with a little further on her hurdles debut and her bumper form would have been below that of her main rival however a positive ride would see her to good advantage here. The others are a modest crew with Celtic Sally and Miss Brooklyn the pick of the remaining quintet.
  1. Henrietta Bell
  2. Giving Back
  3. Miss Brooklyn
