711-12OR: 130
4/1

Highly-consistent mare finished out of the frame for the first time in nine starts latest when fourth of five at Warwick. Only 1lb higher than January Wincanton win so capable of going close again here.

20/1

Three-time chase winner but put in two poor runs in three starts since Bangor victory in December. Remains 5lb higher than that success and her inconsistency is a worry.

811-9OR: 127
13/2

Won twice earlier in the season at Uttoxeter (3m) and Wincanton (3m1f) before going on her customary winter break. Would need a career best off this mark here and record fresh recommends looking elsewhere.

711-5OR: 123
4/1

Won back-to-back starts last summer but flopped four times since. Beaten over 50L into last after a break most recently so despite stable's hot streak she is hard to fancy.

811-3OR: 121
9/1

Beaten a head in a handicap chase over 3m at Wetherby (good-to-soft) in December but off the boil in two starts since over both 3m5f and 3m. Quicker ground here may assist but will need to bounce back.

910-13OR: 117
11/2

Warwick specialist won twice there this season (3m and 3m5f) but flopped back over hurdles latest. Hopeful that a return to fences will show her in a better light here and for all she's not obviously well handicapped she is capable of going well.

710-10OR: 114
7/1

Now 0-7 over fences and for all she has placed several times few of those have actually see her go close including latest third of five which saw her beaten 20L. Will need career best today.

910-0OR: 104BF
9/2

Pleasing start to life for this yard when second over 3m at Warwick but disappointing there next when upped to 3m5f where she actually ran as if wanting even further. Handicap not impossible but must bounce back.

Betting

Forecast

Molly Childers (4/1), Cabaret Queen (4/1), Sheneededtherun (9/2), Goodnight Charlie (11/2), Aunty Ann (13/2), The Wicket Chicken (7/1), Socksy (9/1), Same Circus (20/1)

Verdict

Few of these mares arrive in great form which makes this a really tricky contest. Consistent sort MOLLY CHILDERS looks the safest bet therefore with her record quite admirable. Goodnight Charlie must be forgiven her latest hurdles run but her earlier form over fences ought to see her go close. Sheneededtherun could go well off bottom-weight also.
  1. Molly Childers
  2. Goodnight Charlie
  3. Sheneededtherun
