Verdict

A competitive mares contest in which a careful market check should be made of Bunglasha Lady. AP McCoy is a rare booking for Warren Greatrex and she would have to be taken seriously should the cash arrive for her after a very lengthy absence. Florafern and Kindly Note finished one-two when the pair last met and there should be little between them again, although the latter needs to put an awful run behind her when a tailed-off favourite last time. The choice falls on ALL ANNALENA from the shrewd Lucy Wadham yard. She remains relatively unexposed and showed a good attitude when battling on well to claim fourth spot behind Miss Milborne at Wincanton last time. There should be more to come and she looks attractively treated. Pyleigh Lass remains a maiden over timber but is consistent and expected to go well, whilst Kahsabelle makes each-way appeal off the bottom perch with trip and ground to suit after delivering a much-improved effort at Ludlow last time.
