BALLYCALLAN FAME moved from Dan Skelton to Nick Kent and produced a 125/1 shock when making all for a very easy victory over the trip at Wetherby. It didn't look a fluke and she can defy her penalty. Lady Bowes, a Perth bumper winner, is also penalised for an easy victory at Hexham where she made most while Flexi Furlough won a bumper here in August and was runner-up in another on a return visit in December. Graces Order won a bumper here in March and found the minimum trip too short on her hurdles debut at Wincanton. Winning point-to-pointer Maggies Mogul will need to improve massively from her hurdling debut at Exeter.
