Verdict

OCEAN TRANSIT acts on testing ground as proven by a flat race win at Nottingham most recently and with her fitness advantage she gets the marginal call. She has won over timber off a mark of 105 before and just 5lb higher with the Champion Jockey encouragingly booked for the ride, she can win on her return to the jumps scene. Princess Rainbow looks to be the most obvious threat and a penalty for winning at Hereford is unlikely to deter her from running a big race again. Dot's Delight hasn't won since this month last year and her last run when falling at Stratford hardly inspires confidence. Just Beware has put in two good runs already this month and must enter calculations, but Ocean Transit is nominated to score.
