Verdict

SPRINGINHERSTEP goes well fresh so a recent break is probably a plus and she can land this if the first-time headgear as the desired effect. Bobble Boru has won two of her three starts over hurdles and won a bumper here in November but she has shown her best form so far with plenty of give in the ground. Loyaute's defeat of Baltimore Rock at Kempton two runs ago has been well advertised but she couldn't follow up off today's mark at Exeter and is another who enjoys a softer surface. Bollin Judith has been well beaten in lesser company of late.
