In depth

Verdict

Cotton End has changed stables but placed at Bellewstown and Wexford last month for Mags Mullins. Ffos Las third Carpool may be capable of better and Fricka made the frame three times in bumpers. Donald McCain runs Perfectly Honest and Artichoke Heart but point-to-point and bumper winner GLORIOUS LADY starts out over timber at a modest level and can come out on top.
