TEARSOFCLEWBAY's form figures in races below listed level read 111 and she was a clear-cut winner of a similar event to this at Worcester back in October. The main danger would appear to be Al Reesha, who beat the boys in a novice hurdle at Fakenham when last seen and she should have no problem handling these conditions, having won her bumper on heavy going. Postbridge will need to significantly improve upon her hurdling debut but she is the clear pick of the remainder.
TEARSOFCLEWBAY is the class act in this field regardless of whether she failed to get home last time, the return to this trip likely to see her regain the winning thread at the expense of Al Reesha, who is bound to improve from her winning hurdling debut. Postbridge could enter the equation with a more precise round of jumping than last time.
