    In depth

    Verdict

    The Govaness, fourth in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham in November, was the only one backed to make a race of it with hot favourite Tara Point in a Listed race at Taunton last month but she could only finish fourth, more than two lengths behind DUSKY LEGEND. Alan King's mare was just beaten over 2m here on her hurdling debut and looks the one to beat today if she stays the extra. Altesse De Guye disappointed at Exeter at the start of the month but still has time on her side and looks the pick of the remainder.
