Verdict

NORDICAN BLEUE looks the sort to continue on the up having won two of her last three starts (one over C&D) with the form of her one defeat looking very strong as an additional tick in the box against her form. Duck Egg Blue was behind the suggestion on her hurdling debut and she’s another C&D winner although the temperamental problems that have blighted her Flat career may have started to reappear last time. Book Of Invasions and Felissimus are both making their hurdling debut with the former looking to have the stronger form and chance. Statuario has been busy on the Flat of late and returns to the Bowen yard who were in charge for his 21L Ffos Las win.
