    Verdict

    WAR CREATION won a bumper for Stuart Crawford here in September and has since joined Nicky Henderson. She only had to be pushed out to beat market rival Djarkalin in a maiden hurdle at Ludlow 20 days ago and looks a nice prospect for Trevor Hemmings. Miss Night Owl looks the obvious danger having won by a distance at Ludlow earlier this month, but she is a little more exposed than the selection. The aforementioned Stuart Crawford runs Ayr winner Verona Opera, though she was well beaten under a penalty at Sedgefield last time. Boogie Life had decent bumper form last season and is an interesting debutante.
