CEVARO has come up against a couple of decent novices in her two runs to date over hurdles at Fakenham and Bangor. She'd be unlucky to find one too good again here and gets a confident vote ahead of recent Exeter runner-up Loyaute and Enchanting Smile. The latter was odds-on at Chepstow nine days ago but was beaten in a blanket finish. However, she's run several decent races on heavy ground and shouldn't be underestimated. The remainder have plenty to find if they are to trouble the principals.
