Forecast

Rose Of Arcadia (13/8), Estelle Ma Belle (5/2), Lady Of The Night (16/5), Roseisaroseisarose (10/1), Bellevarde Express (10/1), Spring Run (18/1), Golden Emblem (80/1), Tuscan Pearl (80/1), Crossfirehurricane (100/1), Hit The Bottle (250/1)

Verdict

ESTELLE MA BELLE was a promising second on her Galway hurdle debut for Willie Mullins last summer and gets the nod to make a winning start for new trainer Paul Nicholls but she could be pressed hard by Rose of Arcadia who looked useful when winning a bumper in March. Lady of The Night looks best of the rest.

  1. ESTELLE MA BELLE (FR)
  2. ROSE OF ARCADIA (IRE)
  3. LADY OF THE NIGHT
