Verdict

CARNSPINDLE posted her best effort over fences so far when runner-up at Fakenham a fortnight ago. Warren Greatrex’ mare will appreciate this softer surface and is just preferred to the returning Loveherandleaveher. The latter opened her account over timber when last in action in February and the point-to-point winner may well take to the larger obstacles and figure in the finish. No No Juliet is fitted with headgear having been beaten a long way when third at Fontwell on her chasing bow while Bee Crossing has undergone recent wind surgery and has gone close in testing ground over hurdles in the past. Ballybough Nora failed to complete on her chasing bow but Lamanver Odyssey is partnered by Richard Johnson for her reappearance and could be interesting.
