Not much strength in depth here but THE FOLKES CHOICE has scope to do better and gets the vote. A maiden hurdle winner at Limerick last summer, she was narrowly beaten by Days Ahead on her chasing debut over this track and trip in October and was running in a Grade 3 when pulled up on her latest start in December. Clara More was in good form over hurdles last summer and has run some fair races over fences though she may prove better over further. Pur Style hasn't shown much since arriving from France where she won a Listed race over hurdles but she's still a youngster and there should be more to come.
