10/1

Landed two small-field mares' events last November but finished weakly behind Silent Steps at Southwell (3m, soft) in hat-trick bid when last spotted. Returns from a layoff.

11/4

Blinkers appeared to help case when halting hat-trick bid from Dawnieriver at Southwell in December. Has been more hit than miss since however and needs a big bounce back.

3
Age: 9|  Weight: 11-3  |  J: Shane Quinlan |  T: D L Williams|  OR: 95|  D
14/1

Won her first 2 starts over fences for Dan Skelton at up to 3m last summer but has lost her way for a number of trainers since. Bit more like it last time at Warwick but still requires more.

4
Age: 9|  Weight: 10-7  |  J: Ben Jones |  T: Tim Vaughan|  OR: 85|  D
4/6

Not seen under rules since 2017 when showing promise for trainer Ben Pauling, has been winning in the point-to-point fields recently and must stand a chance of repeating now.

5
Age: 8|  Weight: 10-0  |  J: P J Brennan |  T: D Faulkner|  OR: 77|  D
10/1

Not the most aptly-named, 14-race maiden with questionable attitude. Pulled up on stable debut in April at Chepstow (2m7½f, good; 50-1) and makes little appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Midnight Folie (4/6), Silent Steps (11/4), Dawnieriver (10/1), Gowell (10/1), Mrsrobin (14/1)

Verdict
Not a contest to set the pulse racing but, with recent winning form in point-to-point, MIDNIGHT FOLIE returns to racing under rules with seemingly strong claims of taking this. Dawnieriver was denied a hat-trick last year by Silent Steps when last spotted but can turn the tables on that rival now while Mrsrobin could have minor claims.
  1. Midnight Folie
  2. Dawnieriver
  3. Silent Steps
