Verdict

Winning point-to-pointer SHE RANKS ME landed two Listed races over hurdles just over a year ago and almost made it a hat-trick in that grade when just touched off at Sandown. She's been lightly-raced subsequently and has been found a nice opportunity to make a successful chasing debut. Ballyben landed a maiden hurdle at Hexham in October but didn't show much on his chasing bow at Newcastle, where Harrys Bow fell, though he'll have come on for the experience. Vasco Du Mee has shown virtually nothing so far and though runner-up to Suntiep at Fairyhouse he was beaten a distance and most of the field failed to finish. Tiny Dancer makes his chasing debut and is bred for the job so it would be no surprise if he chased home the selection.
