In depth

Verdict

RIVIERE ARGENTEE (NAP) has gone close in both starts since joining Milton Harris and failed by only a short-head over today’s trip at Plumpton last week. She can go one better in this. Shroughmore Lass has had a wind operation since last in action in October and was placed off similar marks early last year while Bee Crossing is not badly weighted and wears a tongue-tie for the first time on only her second outing for a new yard. All My Love has only won a novice hurdle so far but Sea Story ran well on her handicap debut at Chepstow until fading badly in the closing stages. She's Gina is back on a winning mark but continues to struggle as does the unpredictable Lostnfound.
