Cevaro has been a bit of a disappointment so far over hurdles. She isn't very big and doesn't look a natural jumper so we'll take on the likely favourite here with FAIRYINTHEWIND. She didn't settle on her jumping debut at Chepstow but was still only beaten 10 lengths and hopefully that experience will have taught her plenty. Alan King's filly was at her best on good ground or faster on the Flat. Be My Present has to go on the short-list as her last two runs in bumpers were in Listed races. Emerald Rose finished well ahead of Cevaro at Newton Abbot so also has claims but On The Way Home is best watched making her racecourse debut.
