Plenty Of Chat's form looks solid enough however DANCING DAFFODIL looks the type to improve now handicapping and she is preferred to Keepholdin. Robin Dickin's mare has had three starts over hurdles at big prices, and her best efforts have come on testing ground. She has a mark of 79 to race from today which looks manageable and with the longer trip in her favour she could run well. Plenty Of Chat is one of many in the race who are also stepping up in trip and this son of Oscar is fitted with a tongue-tie for the first time; on the form book he looks the one to beat and is feared. Bled's run behind Moleskin in November reads well but subsequent efforts have been poor, Flowonlovelyriver could be well-treated on a mark of 90, whilst blinkers are tried on Billybo for the first time as he returns to hurdling. Somerset Rose needs a market check, however the vote is given to Dancing Daffodil.
