Garnock won a Stratford bumper on her racecourse debut and has obvious scope for further improvement. But the switch to hurdles should see AMAZING D'AZY come into her own as she's a full sister to Torn Asunder, who won over timber at Down Royal last winter. She can shrug off an absence and land this ahead of Reves D'amour, who won her bumper here in may but needs to settle a little better than she has so far if she's to have a career over hurdles. The remainder are best watched at present.
