In a wide open affair SHE'S HUMBLE looks to be really well treated and can score at one of her favourite venues ahead of Bajan Pride and Chalice Welcome. The pick comes here racing off a mark five pounds lower than when competitive at this course over fences on her penultimate start. She only found a hotpot too good that day and has held her form well to place again next time up. Bajan Pride has had three solid efforts since switching to hurdles from the level. His eighth place in a maiden hurdle won by Red Moloney in December might looking pretty good after the winner turns out at Cheltenham this week and with some average form back on the all-weather since last appearing over obstacles he should be sharp. Chalice Welcome would have chances on some decent efforts in the last few starts and the line from a last time out fourth place is working out well. Dan Tucker could be a nice price for those each-way backers as he's better than recent starts have shown but most likely behind the selection She's Humble.
