KAHSABELLE is taken to atone for her mishap at Hereford last time out and can be forwarded as a confident choice. Bulwark and King Of The Castile may give the selection the most to think about. King Of The Castile shaped with promise on his hurdles debut last time out. He is a long term prospect and can pay his way before too long. Bulwark, who won last year's Chester Cup, is a horse with plenty of ability and should not be underestimated. However, that ability is not always evidenced on the racecourse and, as he seems to save plenty for himself these days, Bulwark is a risky option for win only purposes. However, the opposition isn't that strong today, so he can play a strong part. However, Kahsabelle was travelling like the winner when she tipped up at Hereford 19 days ago and is given the benefit of the doubt on this occasion. Venetia Williams' representative gets all the allowances this evening and, given the irresistible form of the yard, this French-bred mare is sure to be a popular choice to land the spoils here.
