HOAR FROST has the very tentative selection in this opening contest with Amouretta and Sherbet Lemon also given chances. The pick has some of the best flat form among these runners and shaped well on her national hunt debut when landing second place of 13 in a selling contest at Tauton. She may have even won that race if shed hurdled a little better and she should have learnt a lot from that open gambit over obstacles. Amouretta was very moderate on the level but put in a better performance on her hurdles debut last time. The form from the race stands up though with the third placed horse going on to score and with a slight step back in class she should go close. Sherbet Lemon has had two tries over timber after a very short and unsuccessful flat career. She put in a promising debut in National Hunt racing only to show no improvement next time. If some progression can be found she'll be there or thereabouts. Ricci De Mare would have a chance on flat form, although stamina is yet to be proved so in a very tricky start to the day Hoar Frost has the nod.
