Verdict

PRETTYASAPICTURE looked sure to justify favouritism at Market Rasen earlier this month but was mugged close home by a Malcolm Jefferson newcomer. The pair were clear of the third, however, and Alan King's well-bred mare can make it third-time lucky here. Tara Point, a winning pointer who has now joined Paul Nicholls, has to be of interest while Starlight Sonata will improve on her third at Wincanton. Caldey made the frame at Warwick last month and Catherines Well and Cresswell Breeze are debutants to monitor in the betting.
