Limini looks an incredibly exciting prospect and she toyed with her field in the Mares Novice Hurdle at the Festival. The easier ground will also suit Buveur D’Air who ran creditably to chase home stablemate Altior in the Supreme Novices (Petite Mouchoir 8th, North Hill Harvey 9th but better than finishing position after a mistake two out).
NATIVE RIVER (Best price 8-1) represents a yard who enjoyed a magnificent day yesterday with Cue Card and the return to a flat, galloping track can see him take a hand too.
Vibrato Valtat fell four out that day when still moving well and could outrun his price even if his stamina at today’s trip is yet to be proven.
Turban and Blood Cotil (the choice of Ruby Walsh) are others to consider.
