Verdict

It's hard to be overly confident about any of these but EXCLUSIVE DANCER has been taking on slightly better opposition of late and gets a tentative vote after running well for a long way at Wetherby. Texas Rose has been placed in five of her 15 hurdles starts but may need further than this, though Tony Kelly's claim will help her cause. The Flaming Matron did win at Cartmel in May but hasn't shown much since and Retrieve The Stick is looking very one-paced.
