    In depth

    Verdict

    Potters Sapphire has been racing over longer trips so far over hurdles but ran better last time at Huntingdon. ROUERGATE (NAP) looked unlucky last time at Ludlow as she was still in front when coming down at the last. She’d also run well on her hurdles bow at Uttoxeter and compensation awaits here with a clear round. Trooblue has looked one-paced so far but is probably the pick of the remainder, though that’s not saying much.
