Verdict

Koolala was slowly away when only beaten a length in a handicap over 2m at Doncaster last time but whether she'll stay this much longer trip is debatable, though she is by Kayf Tara. Spirit Oscar reverts to hurdles after a spell chasing but looks to have plenty to do under a double penalty while A Shade Of Bay also looks vulnerable. Makadamia caught the eye at Chepstow last month, however, and should have more to offer. PRESSIES GIRL was fifth in a Listed bumper on her latest start and has already won a point-to-point. The switch to hurdles and step up in distance should see her in a better light and she can make a winning debut.
