Lucca Lady won a bumper at Stratford earlier this month, with Malindi Bay tailed off, on her first run for Katy Price but, given her stable's continuing excellent form, CABARET QUEEN is probably the one to beat in this. She is also making her hurdles debut but found 2m too short in a bumper at Southwell in March having earlier won over 3m between the flags. Ebonys Encore has a solid jumping pedigree and was bought for £35,000 after winning a point at Kilworth in March so warrants respect.
