Verdict

Keshi Pearl won a bumper at Uttoxeter back in May and Richard Johnson keeps the winning partnership intact for her hurdling debut. Molly's A Diva was unbeaten in bumpers until running below par at Aintree last time and is another to consider. MADAME DE GUISE has the advantage of hurdling experience having finished fourth at Stratford last month and the winner, Purple Bay, has won again since. Nicky Henderson's filly can confirm running with fifth-placed Mrs Jordan and gets the vote.
