Verdict
BUILDMEUPBUTTERCUP could be well-handicapped judged on the best of her Flat form and she ran with credit on her return to hurdles last time out. Unexpected is an obvious danger on handicap debut while Thatsy is another to consider with an unexposed profile.
  1. Buildmeupbuttercup
  2. Unexcepted
  3. Thatsy
