FLEMENTIME was fancied for a better race at Cheltenham last week but was a late withdrawal. She wouldn't want the ground to get any faster but should take all the beating if taking her chance as her Southwell win in February is working out well. Winning pointer Pressies Girl is certain to improve for her second at Wincanton and rates the danger, though Molly's A Diva and Our Polyanna have their sights lowered. The longer trip promises to suit Nellie Forbush but Churchtown Love disappointed last time and Abigail Lynch was beaten when falling on her hurdling debut at Doncaster. Ruby Glow looks the pick of the remainder.
