L'unique was fourth in a Listed juvenile hurdle at Auteuil on her racecourse debut and has obvious claims if stepping up on that effort on her first start for Alan King. Ironically should confirm Leicester running with Miss Conduct and Allusive Power but is meeting stronger opposition now. Intent and COCKNEY SPARROW were arguably the best of these on the Flat and it's the latter that gets the nod. She's already won on heavy ground and her trainer does well with his juvenile hurdlers. Arley Hall may be best of the rest but this is a tough start.
