Verdict

It's almost a year since Midnight Macarena was last seen over hurdles but she won over fences in December and was second at Wetherby on her latest start. She makes more appeal than the frustrating Floral Spinner, well beaten in a couple of starts at since finishing second at Huntingdon when sent off favourite. That was the fourth time in a row that she'd found one too good. AGENT FEDORA won a bumper at Folkestone on her racecourse debut but her future was always going to lie over hurdles and she gets her chance to shine here. The others are easy to ignore.
