Verdict

In a race where the majority can be ruled out with confidence, the clear pick has to be MYSTERY STOWAWAY. The selection followed up her neck-second over 2m6f at this track when runner-up to a nice type at Killarney earlier this month. This looks a much easier assignment and she can go one better to shed her maiden tag over obstacles. If there is to be a turn up, then perhaps the newcomer Moonlight Eclipse may be able to take advantage given the rest of the field haven't shown a great deal. She is by a top National Hunt sire, and the dam won a bumper/maiden hurdle for this yard. Vintage Queen can prove best of the rest after showing marginal improvement from a modest debut run.
