Verdict
None of this sextet can be written off although one or two will need to improve on what they have shown so far over fences. One who could well do that is PARLOUR MAID who surprised with the way she travelled through a race at Lingfield last time in testing conditions. This will test her again but she’s worth siding with off a 4lb higher mark. Chequered View has been well placed to land three races over fences so far, she drops down from 3m last time but that extra stamina she has may well stand her in good stead. The weak finish of Definitelyanoscar is rather a concern while the other three trio have to improve although Zara Hope is at least a recent winner.
  1. Parlour Maid
  2. Chequered View
  3. Zara Hope
