Bellaboosh got off the mark at Bangor last month and should make another bold bid, despite a penalty, but LUCKY MIX makes more appeal. Alan King's mare kept on well to claim the runners-up spot on her hurdling debut at Exeter last month and today's longer trip looks to be what she needs to get her head in front. Landenstown Pearl ran well enough here on her return from a six-month break and can figure, while better is also expected from Maxford Lass on only her third start after nearly a year off the track.
