Verdict

Forgivienne was caught right on the line by Midnight Cataria here in October and is 7lb better off. But she disappointed next time and the winner was also well beaten at Newbury. Amazing D'Azy turned in a shocker last time but Fairweather Friend's fourth at Warwick was a better effort and the likes of Beatrix Kiddo and Pandy are worth monitoring for market support. Henry Daly does well with his mares in general and winning bumper KAYFLEUR showed enough on her hurdling debut at Huntingdon to suggest she can win a race like this.
