Included has yet to run a bad race over fences but she’s now had five attempts to get off the mark and would have struggled against a few of these over hurdles. If You Say Run is a little quirky but has placed in Grade 2 and Listed company and seems to favour going left-handed. DUHALLOW GESTURE gave weight and a beating to Love Lane over hurdles at Fontwell in March. She has already won a point so the switch to fences shouldn’t be a problem. Lady Mix may need both the run and the experience.
