Verdict

KENTFORD GREY LADY was narrowly beaten in a Grade 2 at Ascot last January before a superb run behind Quevega in the Mares' Hurdle at Cheltenham when she had both Alasi and Kells Belle behind. She reappeared to defy a huge weight in a handicap over the C&D last month and will take some beating. The latter's stablemate, Une Artiste, won the Fred Winter at Cheltenham when receiving plenty of weight then refused to race when sent to the Punchestown Festival. She reappeared to beat Alasi just over two lengths in a Listed contest at Wetherby and is an obvious threat. Kateal, who has been chasing, completes the line-up but will need to improve on what she's shown so far.
