Chesnut Annie has shown a lot more than fellow veteran Lady Myfanwy lately and can't be ignored in this. Spotthestripe has finished second at Leicester and Wetherby since the turn of the year while On Holiday won a shade cosily between the flags earlier this month, though the second didn't do much for the form next time. THEATRE QUEEN has a cracking national hunt pedigree and has won three of her last four starts in point-to-points. She makes her debut under Rules today but should take all the beating if handling the bigger fences. Lucette Annie is probably the pick of the remainder.
