Verdict

MORNING WITH IVAN has yet to run a bad race over hurdles. She finally got off the mark against three rivals at Musselburgh nine days ago and a quick double looks likely given today's opposition. Flat winner Gold Chain was only beaten half-a-length at Musselburgh on her debut in November but hasn't been seen since, though she's still preferred to older mares Just Chilly and Sheilas Lady while newcomer Don't Tell may have stamina issues.
