Verdict

It's hard to have much confidence in any of this bunch. MRS JORDAN was placed at Fontwell on her penultimate start and gets a purely token vote on that basis. The Backup Plan managed a second at Catterick early last year and may return from a lay-off in better form while Harriet's Ark finished third at Fakenham in January in between her more usual poor efforts. Ludlow runner-up Young Lou reverted to her old self when well beaten last time while Tropical Bachelor has another try at hurdling though he has shown little in six previous attempts.
