Verdict

JOIE DE VIVRE shaped well when second at Sedgefield on handicap debut and can be forgiven a lesser effort there subsequently, so she's worth another chance to get off the mark over hurdles with Theo Gillard taking a useful 7 lb off. Wise Coco looks the obvious danger if she participates just 2 days on from a big effort over fences.
