BITTERSWEETHEART carries a penalty courtesy of her victory in a maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter in June but hasn't done a lot wrong since in a couple of starts at the same track in novice events and sets a fair standard here. Me And Ben looks the danger on her recent second at Cartmel, though there should be more to come from Bangor third Duchess Theatre. Scarlet Whispers started well over hurdles when third at Worcester but then disappointed at Stratford. The easier ground should be in her favour and she looks the pick of the remainder.
