Verdict

She may have disappointed over further on her return, but it's wise to expect a much better performance from CONCERTISTA now, particularly bearing in mind the huge promise of her hurdles debut at Cheltenham. Stablemate Mt Leinster and Entoucas are the main dangers on paper, and can take advantage if the selection underperforms.
  1. Concertista
  2. Mt Leinster
  3. Entoucas
