Forecast

Special Princess (11/4), Truckers Cailin (7/2), Chloe's Court (9/2), Massini's Dream (11/2), Bean Liath (7/1), Incertaine (11/1), Catchmeifyoucan (16/1), Getawaytonewbay (20/1), Mole Trap (22/1), Emmas Dilemma (50/1)

Verdict
The improvement that Special Princess has shown over the past few weeks has been dramatic and she’s sure to make a bold bid to record a hat-trick despite being 20lb higher than for her first win, the step back up in trip sure to suit her. This test will also suit TRUCKERS CAILIN who has shown a great deal of progress since entering handicaps and returns to hurdling off the back of her first chase win, she’s still relatively unexposed and may well add to her Ffos Las win. Massini’s Dream isn’t one to rely on but did show last time that she’s capable of winning in the right mood while Chloe’s Court and Catchmeifyoucan are two other with place chances.
  1. Truckers Cailin
  2. Special Princess
  3. Chloe's Court
