Verdict

The quintet with racecourse experience have shown very little and it will be a surprise if this doesn't go to a newcomer. Cara Carlotta is a half-sister to a couple of stayers over jumps while Mistress Mole can count the useful Mr Mole amongst her winning relatives. Mystical Flame is bred to be suited by marathons so may find a few too speedy so the vote goes to MISS ESTELA. She's related to a few winners, amongst them the bumper winner Be My Present, so gets the nod in a contest where the market will be the best guide.
