We end the card with a competitive big field Two Mile Three furlong handicap Hurdle for Amateur Riders where we marginally prefer the chances of ROTHRES while Quay Meadow is on a good run of form and is considered with Papradon making appeal for a top partnership. After a cracking run in defeat last time when only jut beaten home the pick confirmed her recent well being. The ground offers no obstacle here and she looks booked for another top effort. Quay Meadow is also running well and handled these conditions when placing over a longer trip last time. All of his best runs have been over further than this test but is one of the few in fine fettle coming into this. Trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies and his jockey son Sam have had plenty of success this season so Papradon is given plenty of respect in a race where jockeymanship might play a big role. Bob's Sister ran her best race for a while in a selling contest the last time we saw her but will need to build on that back in a handicap so in a tricky race Rothres looks the safest call.
