Forecasts

Mystic Dreamer (11/10), Eyes Right (5/4), Crystal Gazing (6/1), Martha Brae (20/1), Scarlet Couture (20/1), Katies Escape (20/1), Givepeaceachance (66/1), Lady Kingsmill (100/1), Flintara (100/1), Sawpit Sienna (100/1), Hoot At Midnight (100/1), Buck's Beautiful (100/1)

Verdict

With Floressa who was second to MYSTIC DREAMER already a Listed winner over hurdles Nick Gifford's mare has smart bumper form and her third here last month can surely be built upon on so she gets the vote today in an open enough contest. Fellow bumper winner Martha Brae had a tough hurdles introduction at Newbury last month but she should be much more competitive today. Of those unraced over hurdles Crystal Gazing is the most feared given she represents Nicky Henderson.
  1. Mystic Dreamer
