Verdict

Alan Phillips is still searching for a first winner under Rules but a number of the yard's inmates have performed with credit since the Worcestershire handler took out a license, including ANNAMULT, an Irish import who was clear of the remainder when second to Pennant Dancer in a similar contest last time. Up 2lb for that effort, he can provide his handler with a landmark success if repeating that level now. Princesse Fleur is a major threat as a useful dual purpose sort for the Scudamore team although she was arguably slightly disappointing when beaten at Ffos Las in May. She certainly rates a place on the shortlist, whilst former Irish hurdler for the Mangans, Provincial Pride, is also worthy of consideration. He's gone really well on both starts since joining Mike Hammond and a 7lb penalty for a recent success should not prohibit another good effort, especially with Denis O'Regan retaining the ride.
