Verdict

How's Business hasn't beaten much in her three runs to date over fences but she won at this level over hurdles and is clearly in good heart. Charlie Mann's mare should make a bold bid to extend her winning run but, off level weights and on quicker ground, may find the progressive PEPITE ROSE too good. Still only a five-year-old, Venetia Williams' charge jumps really well for a novice and has already won over these fences. Gan On returns from a lay-off while Way Back When and Seamus Mullins' pair Time To Think and Catch The Rascal are racing from out of the handicap proper and need to improve on what they've show so far.
