Verdict

Alan King has won two of the last three renewals and is double-handed this time. Forgiving Glance will have benefited from his run behind the more-experienced Culture De Sivola at Leicester but the stable's first choice is MYSTERY CODE (NAP). She readily brushed aside Culture De Sivola at Fakenham on her hurdling debut and looks to have a bright future. Jer's Girl easily won a Limerick maiden and is very lightly-raced so looks the danger ahead of French raider Kamaloka and New Vennture.
