LITTLE DUTCH GIRL arguably ran her best race so far over hurdles when running Leviathan to a length-and-a-half at Plumpton last month. She should break her duck here if running anywhere near that form as she gets 6lb from Choisirez, who is penalised for winning a seller and was pulled up last time at Wincanton. Golden Acorn wasn't beaten far at Ludlow 11 days ago but that was a weak race and Warwick fourth Jaja De Jau probably has more scope. Palmyra might prefer faster ground.
