Verdict

Ruthenoise makes a swift reappearance after acting as a pacemaker for stablemate Binocular at Sandown last weekend. It's probably not wise to take that form too literally and more interesting is recent Ffos Las winner Gilwen Glory, though the shorter trip on better ground is probably not in her favour. Real Treasure wasn't at her best last time but Kim Bailey's mare is worth another try over this trip while Prescelli can't be ignored back over hurdles. Another C&D winner, Lady Bling Bling, was second over fences on her reappearance but this looks a good opportunity for CLOUDY SPIRIT to add to her win in a Southwell bumper in December. This is her trip nowadays and she's run well in both previous visits to Ludlow. Princess Rainbow could be the pick of the remainder, though stamina doubts remain over this distance.
