DUSKY LEGEND won’t be much of a price in this but her form looks far superior to that of her rivals and she should have little trouble opening her account. Alan King's mare chased home Limini in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham in March and is unlikely to find anything as good as her in this. Bumper winner Miss Spent can chase her home ahead Isla Fernandos, second at Southwell in March. Mozo has also won a bumper but hasn't taken to hurdles so far.
