EARTH AMBER is rated 94 on the Flat and is related to a hurdles winner in France. Nicky Henderson's impressive strike rate at this course suggests she'll go close on her hurdling bow and she's getting plenty of weight from Wadswick Court. The latter added to his bumper wins with a victory over hurdles at Huntingdon last month. Bally Braes showed ability in a bumper at Aintree but never figured on his first start over timber and the remainder make even less appeal on what little they've shown so far.
