Verdict

The maiden QUEEN SPUD must have a decent chance in this as she had both In By Midnight and subsequent Market Rasen third Favorite Girl behind when second over a similar trip at Doncaster in December. Gaye Memories was still very green when landing a maiden hurdle over course and distance last time and has plenty of scope but Definite Ruby has something to prove having been pulled up on her latest start at Southwell. The ground may be too soft for Candelita.
