Mona Agnes ran well on her debut at Clonmel in March and has since joined a new yard. Kilkenny Kim has the more recent form and makes more appeal on her third at Carlisle. Jessica Valentine has been off the track for nearly a year after placing at Catterick and point-to-point winner Bitofapuzzle is preferred making her debut under Rules. But a speculative vote goes to the newcomer MIGHTY MINNIE, a sister to top-class hurdler and chaser Mighty Man and worth noting for any strong support in the betting.
