Three times a winner over hurdles, KERADA is proving even better over the larger obstacles and has now won all three starts, including one over these fences. She's worth sticking with here as she's already beaten Sway, who appears to have lost her way a little, and Asturienne. The latter has since won twice herself and had today's rival Evella well behind when scoring at Plumpton recently. Easter Legend was still in contention when falling at Exeter in December but had won her previous two starts over fences. She could prove the biggest danger to the selection as Huntingdon winner Douryna would prefer more cut in the ground.
