Maire Banrigh’s defeat of Thomas Darby at Warwick doesn’t look as good now as it did at the time but she is 2-2 over fences and is getting 5lb from Alsa Mix, who is closely matched with Chilli Filli on their run together in this grade at Bangor. Really Super’s jumping was much better at Kempton but she has a lot to find with her four rivals according to official ratings. SENSULANO could be the value given she finished ahead of a subsequent easy winner on her chasing bow at Ffos Las before drawing well clear when landing the odds at Fontwell - there should be plenty more to come.
