Bergamot was placed twice before winning a Ludlow bumper in April. Nordican Bleue has started in all three starts for Richard Newland but has come up short on each occasion. This may be too short for winning pointer Bannixtown Glory but Zoutoise won a bumper on debut at Wetherby and clearly wasn’t herself on a return visit. MISS HERITAGE (NAP) could be a nice prospect as she won a couple of bumpers and ran in a Grade 2 at Aintree in April - she will have had plenty of schooling.
