Retrieve The Stick started favourite at Southwell last month after seconds here and at Hexham but let supporters down. She could easily bounce back but we'd rather take a chance on the fitness of PASTORAL, who was taking on stronger opposition last winter and clearly didn't handle the Fibresand at Southwell in March. All For Lily should build on her fifth at Worcester while Hannah's Princess, a half-sister to two winning hurdlers, looks the pick of the newcomers.
