Has 8-28 strike-rate over fences that includes a win off 10lb higher in this race 12 months ago; looked as good as ever when collecting 2m7f Listed prize in December but seems badly to have lost her way this year.

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.

Multiple Listed winner, including the last two runnings of this race (soft/good) and at Aintree three weeks ago (2m4f, heavy; easily); it's a stronger race than in 2021 and 2022 but she should still be a tough nut to crack.

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.

Two outings at Carlisle have resulted in a win over hurdles and good third over fences, both on good to soft; scored comfortably at Kempton (2m4f, good) most recently, opening her chase account at the third attempt; this 7yo mare is open to further improvement; shortlisted.

Four wins from 15 chase starts; going as well as Allegorie De Vassy three out in this race last year but was bumped and fell; caught that one on a bad day at Fairyhouse (heavy) on New Year's Day but readily outpointed by her at Naas (2m, heavy) next time; not entirely dismissed, even so.
