Miss Estela beat MISTRESS MOLE, Cara Carlotta and One Big Love at Taunton last month but now has a penalty to carry and we'll take Paul Nicholls' mare, who looked as though she just needed the run, to reverse the form and come out on top here. Taylor has her first run for Nicky Henderson having finished fourth at Navan on debut. Ardnahoe won at Limerick last month but the form isn't working out and Coco Shambhala also needs more. Vicky's Charm was second at Uttoxeter on debut while winning pointers Kilronan High and Presenting Newmill are worth monitoring in market exchanges.
