Tara Rose has already won at Worcester and Plumpton and several of today's rivals look capable of getting off the mark in the near future. Florafern had decent form in bumpers last season and found only Hit The Headlines too good over this trip at Huntingdon 13 days ago. Nicky Henderson trains the latter and is also responsible for BRAVE ALLIANCE. This is the Presenting filly's first run over hurdles but she's certainly bred for the job being a full sister to the top-class Voy Por Ustedes and, as she was no slouch in bumpers, can come out on top here. Lady Kathleen had Definite Lady behind when third over 2m at Lingfield and will appreciate the longer distance. She may have more scope than Irish import Mabel Tasman while Dushy Lady, Fly Town and Zahirah Moon may need more time.
