Verdict

MAISON DE VILLE looks the safest option in this. She's been placed in all three starts in bumpers including a third at Aintree in October and should have the beating of Yon Dora, the only other runner with experience. Newcomers to note include Notimetowaste representing a powerful yard and Bob's Lady Tara but Flemens Pride makes more appeal as she's a half-sister to three winners including bumper winner Crowning Jewel and the recent winning hurdler Flora's Pride.
