Verdict

JOANNE ONE won a couple of bumpers, including a Listed contest at Navan a year ago, and made a successful start to her hurdling career when stretching clear of her rivals at Ffos Las last month. Jamie Snowden's mare is clearly useful and should be up to defying her penalty in this. French import Unefille De Guye has a jumping pedigree while Blue Buttons should make her mark over timber. Ruby Glow shaped with promise when second to Carole's Destiny at Plumpton last year but might just need this.
