Betting

Forecast

Precious Eleanor (9/2), Airgead Suas (9/2), Une De La Seniere (9/2), Jemima P (9/2), Czech Her Out (5/1), Cotton End (6/1), Northern Princess (10/1), Brophies Doll (11/1), Highway One (16/1), Lady Sally (16/1), Mrsgrey (16/1), Nearly Famous (16/1), Winfola (20/1), The Lion Queen (22/1), Costly Diamond (25/1), Ayr Of Elegance (28/1), Lets Go Dutchess (40/1), Pretty Fantasy (66/1)

Verdict

NEARLY FAMOUS hasn't run over hurdles for the best part of 2 years, but she won't be found wanting fitness-wise following a handful of spins on the Flat in recent months. She resumes in this sphere on an appealing mark and earns the vote ahead of Northern Princess, who has been handed a fair-looking mark for this handicap debut. Czech Her Out and likely improver Lady Sally are others to consider.

  1. NEARLY FAMOUS
  2. NORTHERN PRINCESS
  3. CZECH HER OUT (IRE)
