Verdict

Nicky Henderson is usually well represented in this contest and it looks significant that he relies on LIFESTLYE who can prove too strong for Mizzurka and Chicklemix. The selection ran out an impressive winner of her sole start to date at Ffos Las and should be able to keep her unbeaten record intact. She certainly looks the part on paper and the mare that chased her home won over hurdles on her next outing to give the form a boost and she could be hard to beat. One that will certainly give her something to think about is Mizzurka who won well enough at Newbury but was arguably more impressive under a penalty at Taunton where she made every yard. The second and third have run well since and Mizzurka should be good enough to grab a share of the spoils. Chicklemix barely came off the bridle when scoring at Fakenham and should have more to offer although the likelihood is that that race didn't take a great deal of winning and it's hard to see why the second home, Grassfinch, should reverse the form. Deejan and Definitely Lovely rate a mention but this race lacks the customary strength in depth and should go to Lifestyle.
