Verdict

TOO GENEROUS disappointed on her hurdling debut at Bangor but made no mistake at Fontwell on Boxing Day. That was a much better race than this and David Pipe's mare will be a short price to follow up here. Grace And Fortune is probably the one for forecast-backers as she showed much improved form to run American Life to a head at Lingfield last month and Courting Whitney's surprise victory at Worcester in July seems a long time ago now. Hernello represents an in-form yard but was well beaten on her only run to date over timber.
