Verdict

A winner at Perth and Cartmel over the summer, Mega Double may struggle a little more now that autumn has arrived. Somethinboutangela won over a much longer trip at Killarney for previous connections and may need to acclimatise to new surroundings. Tomorrow's Angel is now 0-13 under Rules and was beaten in a match last time at Sedgefield while Sweet Vinetta failed to build on a Catterick victory last December. The three-year-old LADY SHANAWELL had shown promise over hurdles before beating a previous winner at Cartmel. Placed on the Flat since, she gives every indication she’ll handle this step up in trip.
