In depth

Verdict

Scartare is often placed but a record of 0-32 speaks for itself. JEMIMA P (NAP) was only beaten a neck by College Oak, rated 115, over hurdles at Uttoxeter on her reappearance. The third is rated 112 and Emma Lavelle’s mare runs here off 105. Get Wishing only won of his 14 starts over timber but Eau Top is still relatively unexposed with Tribesmans Glory most interesting among the remainder.
