Verdict

Glenora Gale's form is head and shoulders above the rest of those with hurdling experience but she's by no means bombproof, having been a beaten favourite in two of her six starts over obstacles - she again looked one-paced when third in a handicap at Aintree last time. MISS BALLANTYNE is a half-sister to a couple of winning hurdlers around this trip and should improve now she goes jumping. Nicky Henderson's mare gets the vote ahead of winning pointer Sapphire Moon, who has more scope than Ounaben.
