Verdict
A handful of horses can stake claims in this contest, but preference is for CLONDAW CAITLIN, who is the only mare in the field to have registered a victory over hurdles so far. Despite stepping up in trip, she isn't penalised and this dangerous front-runner could make all once again if grinding her rivals into submission. Miss Flying Fox finished respectably behind the smart Vegas Blue last time, and if that form is looking stronger by the day. While the likes of La Hulpe and Wheest should do better over hurdles after some poor runs in bumpers.
  1. Clondaw Caitlin
  2. Miss Flying Fox
  3. Wheesht
