The Paul Nicholls trained Cill Anna looks the pick of the bunch in the Listed Mares Novices Hurdle at Doncaster at the weekend and is our fancy.
The five year old mare has made huge strides forward this term after starting over bumpers in October and not running to bad standard but over hurdles she has looked a different animal.
She went to Wincanton in December and finished a strong third of 13 behind a nice type for Tom Lacey and since then she has used that to be unbeaten in her next two contests.
The pacy mare headed to Warwick in a Mares Novices Hurdle and when taking on a decent runner for the Skelton's she stuck to the task well to land her first contest over timber.
She added to this next time out at Wincanton when beating a much better field in a similar event and now stepping up to Listed company she looks the pick of the ante-post field.
