Verdict

Sea Claria, a winner on the Flat in France, made her UK debut in a much better race than this at Haydock and attracted support but made a mess of the first and was soon done with. Attente De Sivola, a half-sister to several winners, didn't show much on her debut in a Newbury bumper when Flute Bowl was just behind but should have improved for the racecourse experience as should the latter, who has been beaten subsequently though hurdling is more likely to be her game. Sureness won twice on the Flat for Marco Botti and won't have to be special to make a winning hurdling debut but this looks a good opportunity for HAATEFINA. She has been caught in the closing stages in her last three runs, one of them by Red Four where a last-flight error cost her the race. She's 6lb better off and can take her revenge and finally lose her maiden tag.
