Verdict

The wonderfully named GOOCHYPOOCHYPRADER is a tough mare who battled to victory at Wincanton, her second success this season. She's had a wind operation which appears to have transformed her and she can defy a 7lb rise and go in again. Wilde Ruby is comfortably the best class performer here but all of her best performances have been over much further including when scoring over 3m3f at Newton Abbot last summer. Shesha Bear, five times a winner on the Flat, makes her debut in a handicap over timber after a couple of fair runs at Lingfield in November and she can be expected to improve while course winner Lindsay's Dream is better than she's been showing lately and can get into the frame.
