From the family of Grand National winner Red Marauder so she did well to win a good-ground bumper around Hereford and the second didn't disgrace the form when fifth in a Listed race at Cheltenham; nice prospect.

Tailed off in Listed bumper but had come second in her first three bumpers and returned to form when third of 13 in maiden at Catterick (1m7f, soft) four weeks ago on hurdle debut, just behind Phone Home; new trip is plausible, with dam a 2m4f hurdle winner, and she's a contender on form.

Dual bumper winner for Rae Guest last summer; never involved in a Doncaster Listed bumper back from a break in December; the fact she changed hands for only 8,000gns in January is a slight worry but those bumper successes suggest she should be up to making an impact in a race like this on the Flat.

Ben Pauling’s MAGICAL ANNIE was bought for £140,000 after winning at Galway and her proven ability in the mud ticks a big box. Rula Bula (second choice), Future Fortune and Looking As You Are are next on the list.[Alistair Jones]
