Form & Verdict

Still 11lb well in despite the penalty for last week's Cheltenham Grade 2 mares' handicap success (2m4f, good), gained from a stone out of the weights; appears to stay 3m and could get this run as much to suit courtesy of Midnight Mary; just a case of whether this comes too soon.

Headstrong mare who settled okay in the first-time hood at Ascot last week (2m1f, good) but found nothing significant for pressure once the chips were down; has the form to feature but she's not one to rely on.

Chase wins at 2m4f (good) and 3m (good to soft) but bettered those efforts when a cracking third in a competitive handicap at Cheltenham (2m, good to soft) in November; another useful effort over 2m4f (soft) there next time but out of depth in only start since; good claims down in class.

Form & Verdict

Big personal-best RPR when runner-up in novice chase at Warwick (2m4f, soft) last month but her mark is unchanged; the step back up in trip is no problem for a four-time hurdles winner at 2m7f+; well treated; player.

Midnight Mary

11st 5lb

J: Bryony Frost

T: Lucy Wadham

Likeable mare with a consistent profile but her only chase win came off a 12lb lower mark and she's gone up 5lb for performing above herself in the face of a stiff task in a Listed race for mares last time (2m4f; fine at 3m and on soft); possibly flattered by that and opposable off current mark.

Form & Verdict

Outjumped at the last, but for which last month's Ffos Las chasing debut (2m4f) may have been a winning one; that was on heavy, and yet to record an RPR above 96 on officially good ground; blinkers added.

Given break after a lacklustre performance last May and again looked out of sorts when reappearing last month; can't be supported with any confidence at present but she's now 7lb lower than when going close over C&D (heavy) on chasing debut last March.

Jumping lacked fluency last spring on first three chase starts and pulled up when last seen; however, she showed promise on her first two runs over fences and could have a part to play if back on song after a break.

Form & Verdict

Raised highest hurdles winning mark another 5lb at Hereford in February (3m2f, good), and did okay upped to Class 3 after; 0-10 record left-handed versus 4-13 the other way round concerns more than the switch to fences.

Definite promise when hitting the frame on all three 2m4f hurdle runs (good/soft), and abundance of chase winners (at up to 3m2f) in immediate family adds to her appeal now taking on fences; respected.
