Yamuna River has the highest rating of these courtesy of a close second at Fontwell in November but she’s finished last in her last two appearances. Angel Of The North reverted to type at Warwick and was well behind RIVIERE ARGENTEE, who was third over course and distance subsequently in a much better race than this. Nice To Sea would not need to be anything special to make an impact on her hurdles bow.
