Springinherstep came up short when tried in Listed company at Cheltenham last time but will appreciate this drop in grade and must go close if handling the quicker ground. But FAIRYINTHEWIND created a favourable impression when winning at Worcester two weeks ago and might be worth risking at the likely odds as she's still improving and will enjoy this sharp track. Amistress did nothing wrong on her hurdling debut when only beaten half-a-length by Weather Babe at Towcester and should be winning soon.
