Little Glenshee tries her hand at handicapping having won a couple of novice events recently and she should make a bold bid in this company. Hannah Jacques is another novice hurdle winner but she couldn't cope in a Listed contest at Haydock last time and should finish closer today. GOLDEN SPARKLE is up 7lb for her win at Musselburgh last time but she scored by four lengths and makes more appeal than recent Sedgefield winner Sparkling Hand as the latter was well beaten off today's mark last time. Lucematic could make the frame and is preferred to Irish raiders Twin Plan and Streamtown.
