This low-grade affair is very difficult to solve and there are any number of possible winners; from a shortlist of Rokinhorsescience, Command Marshal and LADY WRIGHT it's the last mentioned who gets the vote. Ollie Greenall takes the ride aboard our selection, whose sole win came at this trip on quick ground. She's now 12lbs higher but has run with credit in two starts since despite conditions not being ideal and is the just about the most solid betting proposition here, with the jockey's claim to help. Command Marshal has two hurdles victories to his name and both have come at today's distance. He's almost a stone higher than for the last of them but took a good second last time to a well-treated mare and the fact that one has since blown out shouldn't be viewed as a negative, so inconsistent is Kahsabelle. He's rated a threat along with Rokinhorsescience who cost plenty and should do better now tackling this sort of trip on good ground. Sparkling Montjeu has won over both two and three miles on a variety of ground and therefore must be considered off a favourable mark along with Perfectus who is choicely bred but may prefer some cut. Sir Monty is consistent but doesn't look particularly well treated and Extreme Conviction hasn't yet reproduced bumper form so we'll side with the top weight Lady Wright.
