Verdict

JANE LAMB was a beaten favourite three times in bumpers but ran well on her hurdling debut when only a length behind Saumur in what looked a strong maiden at Huntingdon. That was her first start for 471 days so she should be ready for this. Mo Tottie has shown little in her two starts while Oneofthesenights hasn't run since landing a point-to-point at Tattersalls Farm in November 2016. Stephanie Sunshine has produced three decent runs at Chepstow, the latest when almost making all over 2m3f. She's the obvious danger to the selection.
