Verdict

The Queen's SIDE STEP made her debut at Ludlow last month but couldn't cope with Tara Mist and Ballyhollow. The winner went on to finish second in a Listed race, however, while the runner-up went one better at Towcester next time so the form has a solid look about it and she can open her account here. Balmusette wasn't disgraced under a penalty at Uttoxeter after a break and should run well again while Ebony Empress is edging closer to a first victory. Newcomer Star Of Salford is very interesting as she's a half-sister to five winners on the Flat and over jumps. A market move for either her or Well Connected, who is a half-sister to hurdles and bumper winner Royal Guardsman, should certainly be noted.
