Multiple wins in Listed mares' chases, the latest at Newbury (2m7f, soft) in December; she's well treated on that form now back in a handicap but has been a long way below her best the last twice; needs to bounce back.

C&D winner who has been placed in the last two runnings of this, on good to soft and soft; however, she has ground to make up on Allegorie De Vassy on the latter running and was seemingly disheartened by a fall in January when pulled up at Exeter since.

8-26 over fences, including making all in this race last year and there have been three wins since, the latest at Newbury (soft) in December; fell (some way out) on latest start but plenty of form in the last year suggests she's a serious player.

Lightly raced for an 8yo; point/hurdle winner and returned from an absence to make a successful chase debut over C&D (soft) three weeks ago, which was pretty straightforward from off the pace; up 6lb but that looks very manageable.

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.
