Verdict

Entrance sprang a surprise at Nottingham last time and is only 4lb higher here. She could go close if in the same mood while Serena Brotherton is reunited with Amazin Blue Sky, whom she partnered to success at Haydock last month. Ruth Carr's charge is another for the short-list along with top weight Strike Force and Visions Of Johanna, though the latter carries a penalty for his win in a Wolverhampton seller last week. Harriet Bethell struck up a good understanding with FUJIN DANCER over hurdles earlier this year and Brian Ellison's six-year-old returns to the Flat on a decent mark. He's a lot more compliant nowadays and may be the one to beat.
