In depth

Verdict

Miss Mayfair has been placed in all three starts to date and will probably make the frame again here. But she may find LOOKING HOPEFUL too strong if Nicky Henderson's charge reproduces his run over C&D on Boxing Day last year when he was only beaten half-a-length. King's Exit and West End are both converts from the point-to-point field while newcomer Munchkin could be interesting if attracting market support.
