Forecasts

Miss Night Owl (1/1), War Creation (2/1), Verona Opera (6/1), River Icon (11/1), Boogie Life (16/1), Topham Bay (20/1), Final Reminder (40/1), Wide Awake (50/1), Just Brooke (66/1), Side Of The Road (100/1), Lucarno Dancer (200/1), Katy Royal (250/1)

Verdict

Not a great amount of strength in depth, with the previous winners MISS NIGHT OWL and War Creation probably vulnerable under penalties if facing stronger rivals. However, a chance is taken that the Tom George trained mare will handle this likely faster ground and have just enough in the locker to see off Nicky Henderson's Ludlow winner. Of the remainder, given her purchase price, you'd like to be seeing Final Reminder doing better at some point sooner rather than later.
