TUESDAY CLOSE BROTHERS MARES’ HURDLE
1. Roksana 2. Concertista 3. Black Tears 2019 winner Roksana is arguably best over three miles nowadays, so also has the Stayers’ Hurdle as an option, but would have leading claims here. Dan Skelton’s mare has been in tremendous form this season, winning twice and a close third in the Long Walk. Concertista turned the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle into a procession last season and has won well twice this term. She is a huge danger but is skinny enough in the market. Black Tears has run well at the last two festivals and is the each-way value.
