LOVEHERANDLEAVEHER has suffered a couple of unfortunate mishaps under Rules. She needs a change of luck but a clear round could see her get the better of fellow point-to-point converts Getaway Honey, who won a Stratford bumper in July, and Makety. Malachys Girl has also won between the flags and run in a bumper but she was disappointing behind all-the-way winner Liberty Bella at Ludlow. Cedar Valley will have benefited from her first taste of hurdling at Wincanton and she’s not out of this.
