Verdict

Valrene only scrambled home in a maiden hurdle over C&D last month but is probably improving and should be a factor here, despite the penalty. Bright Light was second in a Fontwell bumper in March on her racecourse debut but WEATHER BABE had the stronger form in that sphere and can make a winning start to her hurdles career as she's already shown he handles this stiff track. My Nosy Rosy has hinted at ability and could be the pick of the remainder.
