My Lucky Flame has become something of a standing dish at Worcester and she has run with plenty of promise on her only try over three miles. With Mikey Hamill able to claim 10lb, she is sure to be strongly fancied. PASS THE TIME has been busy on the Flat and we'll take a chance about Neil Mulholland's filly. Her hurdling has been little to write home about in the past but she has demonstrated some improvement for the step up in trip on the level, and it's hoped that she can transfer that progression between codes. Seedless has scored previously at Bangor on two occasions though she's never produced much on genuinely quick ground. Flew The Nest gets in off a featherweight and despite some wide margin losses, it would be folly to rule out anything from Jonjo O'Neill's stable at the present.
