A reasonably strong looking field in this Mares Hurdle where Nicky Henderson has 2 in this race with Floressa currently is Market favourite having won first time out at Newbury however was only 4th Last time out in the Kempton Christmas Hurdle behind Siver Streak, Epatante & Ballyandy which is no disgrace. So, this looks an easier race this time out however the price is a little short for me.
My selection however would be for Nicky Henderson other horse in the race MARIE'S ROCK who I don't think we have seen the best of her yet. Unbeaten last season winning 3 out of 3. Forget her last run at Newbury she was to keen and I think the ground may have been too quick for her these softer conditions should suit. Lots of times throughout the season you'll see the trainers outsider of the 2 win races. So im hoping this happens today.
Miranda on paper would have to step up significantly to win this you would imagine along with the rest of the field in here. Rayna's World would certainly enjoy it more if the conditions get more and more testing and perhaps would be a bit of value at a bigger price.
MARIE’S ROCK (WIN)
