Those near the head of the handicap should dominate proceedings in this. Icanmotor finally opened her account at the 28th attempt at Southwell last month but had been knocking on the door previously. However, she’s been hit with a 10lb rise, which looks harsh. Camillas Wish found the switch back to hurdles at Fakenham no problem under Becky Smith and is respected under a penalty but PEARLITA’s second at Worcester came in a higher grade and she could pick up the winning thread again here if responding to the visor. Prospera Pascha and Lavella Wells will be looking to pick up any pieces.
