Verdict

Theatre Territory looked sure to win at Newbury last month when capsizing two out. This is a better race, however, and Ms Parfois will also need to step up on her victory at Warwick. The latter was earlier easily outpaced by COLIN’S SISTER in a Listed race at Haydock and Colin Tizzard’s likeable mare is fancied to confirm that form on 5lb worse terms. She can complete her four-timer as Happy Diva’s better recent form has been over further. Kelka won a couple of minor events before the turn of the year but had her limitations exposed last time at Sedgefield.
