This looks one for the market watchers though if OUR KATIE can transfer her talents from point-to-points and bumpers she should be the one to be on. She probably didn't beat much in a bumper here three weeks ago but did it impressively and can make a winning start over timber. Blue Article dead-heated for a Worcester bumper when trained by Donald McCain when the rest were beaten a long way. She looks a nice type who should do well over hurdles. Teochew showed her first sign of promise in a course and distance maiden last month and further progress will see her in the mix while Get Off The Stage, who fell at the first in that race, had been well supported on the back of several fair efforts. Girl In Blue also ran in the same event and was up with the pace for a long way before fading.
