Verdict

KALAHARI QUEEN impressed when taking a handicap hurdle at Exeter last time out and with the step up in trip to suit she can defy an 11lb rise in the weights to take this competitive Graded contest. Midnight Tune was the winner of a Graded novice contest last time out and she looks capable of claiming second on her return to handicaps while If You Say Run, runner-up behind her on that occasion can finish third.
  1. Kalahari Queen
  2. Midnight Tune
  3. If You Say Run
