Verdict

SO LONELY started out with promise in bumpers in the UK and was placed in her two starts over timber in Ireland. Now with Dan Skelton, she'll have come on a bundle for her run at Newbury last month and should be winning soon, starting here. Pardon Me has been placed a couple of times but has never really looked like winning while winning point-to-pointer Millarville is surely better than she showed in a novices' hurdle at Warwick. Oriental Flame showed enough in bumpers to suggest it wouldn't be long before she was winning though she hasn't shown much in her two starts over timber at Taunton, the latest in a Listed contest.
