Verdict

Entertain Me's sixth at Worcester last month was her first run for almost two years. She should strip fitter here and be in the firing line if her jumping is up to scratch. But we just prefer PAMPELONNE, who was just about the best of these over hurdles and went very close over the smaller obstacles last season on several occasions. Her lack of finishing speed may not be as much of a handicap over fences. Double Silver disappointed over hurdles last time and would probably prefer a bit further but still looks a better bet than the more exposed Illysantachristina and Truckers Princess.
