Verdict

It looks a little early in the day to be dismissing the chances of ASK SUSAN following a couple of starts for the champion trainer. The mare shaped well on first chase start for the yard, finishing third of 15 at Punchestown earlier this month and can hold off the potential challenge from stablemate, Pylonthepressure, Killarney winner, Swingbridge and solid jumper, Mall Dini. In a wide-open contest De Name Escapes Me, Peregrine Run and Mrs Lovett are all deserving of consideration.
  1. Ask Susan
  2. Swingbridge
  3. Mrs Lovett
