Everlanes (10/3), Loveherandleaveher (4/1), Molly Carew (4/1), Top And Drop (6/1), Outofthisworld (7/1), Inch Lala (7/1), Troubled Soul (12/1), Kentford Mallard (20/1)

Verdict

With her handler having a fine 26% winning strike-rate in chases at this venue, LOVEHERANDLEAVEHER is fancied to improve on a promising recent chasing bow and land this modest affair. Top And Drop appeals as a likely danger and the drop back in trip should not be an issue for a mare who likes the testing conditions. Molly Carew wasn't disgraced (although beaten a long way in the end) at Cheltenham last time, and it will be interesting to see if the unexposed top weight Outofthisworld attracts any support in the betting market. On the face of it she has plenty of weight, but is surely better than she showed on chasing bow last time.
