Verdict

Oscar Amy won a point-to-point in Ireland in November and will be ready for this but she'll have to be decent to prevent DEFINITE RUBY going one better than when making the odds-on Eleven Fifty Nine pull out all the stops at Doncaster. Alder Mairi would have claims on her defeat of Hidden Identity on heavy ground at Lingfield in November as she was biting off more than she could chew in Listed company at Haydock next time. Paupers Present and Witchesintune look best of the rest but that's probably not saying much.
