Verdict

TANTE SISSI had become a little disappointing prior to her third at Ludlow but she showed enough there to suggest she'll win races over fences at a modest level. Alan King's mare should be too good for the enigmatic Barton Stacey and In By Midnight, who struggles to get her head in front. The Rattler Obrien had no such problem over hurdles and has been placed in a hunter chase so a switch to the larger obstacles shouldn't be a problem. Martin Hill's gelding looks the danger.
