Verdict

Jim Best has a decent strike-rate with the runners he sends here and Outrath, who won a bumper at Lingfield back in December, is an interesting contender in this. Miami Present couldn't quite get to Bright Prospect at Kilbeggan in August but that was over 2m3f and he has his first run for new connections here. Blue April is a probable improver but this looks a good opportunity for LEGEND LADY (NAP). Oliver Sherwood's Midnight Legend mare was a 40/1 chance for a Listed bumper at Aintree in April but belied those odds with a fine run into sixth and she has the pedigree to make a hurdler.
