Verdict

Nicky Henderson, Anthony Honeyball and Donald McCain enjoy plenty of success with their bumper horses and all three trainers will fancy their chances in this. The former saddles Dungarvan Lass, a half-sister to a bumper winner, while the second-named introduces point-to-point winner Lily Waugh. But JE T'AIME showed enough when third at Catterick last month to suggest she can win a race like this. Celestial Island and Rising Teal are more exposed but should be thereabouts again.
