Verdict

Luck Of Clover is a consistent filly but she continues to look a little one-paced, though has plenty of all-weather experience and gets 7lb from the less-exposed Moment Of Hope. The latter was well supported when making a winning debut at Kempton in March but finished tailed off subsequently at Newmarket. AVENUE FOCH was third here in the autumn and looks certain to appreciate the step up in trip having failed to make an impact in a handicap at Nottingham when making his debut for James Fanshawe
