Verdict

Tara Rose and Jackies Solitaire are the best of these over hurdles but both are making their chasing debuts on their first starts since March. KYKATE looks a safer option as she jumped well enough at Carlisle recently on her debut over fences before running out of steam in the latter part of the race. A point-to-point and hurdles winner, A Little Swifter could figure if taking to the larger obstacles while Hopeand finished a bit closer on her fourth outing over fences but remains winless in 25 starts. Gers Benefit is easily overlooked.
