Mare's events are always tricky but the vote goes to ROSE STREET ahead of Onemix and Recurring Dream. With Nicky Henderson's mare struggling with a speed horse two runs ago it should pay to stick with Rose Street. This former useful flat horse was once rated in the mid nineties when with Michael Jarvis. She made an encouraging debut over timber when beaten by a fellow decent flat horse at Musselburgh. That form is good and this mare has all the size and scope to go on and make a vey useful national hunt performer. Nicky Henderson's mare may well start favourite but we will certainly be taking her on. Twice now she has been beaten at short prices, finishing second in one and unseating in the other. She should enjoy this track though and needs quick ground so if beaten today she won't have any excuses. Recurring Dream took a big step forward on her earlier form in her last race. However, she still has plenty to find with the above two, as do the rest of the field.
