Verdict

Mares' novices' hurdles are never easy to predict and this is no exception. Jordans Day would be a surprise winner and Cinnomhor's bumper form tailed off last season but RATHVAWN BELLE won at Punchestown before contesting a Listed bumper at Aintree in April and could be too speedy for these. Push Me has already scored over timber, however, though it took her six attempts and she now carries a penalty. Sultana Belle was third behind a subsequent winner at Sedgefield 11 days ago but looks thoroughly exposed.
