Verdict

Seedless will make this a true test and won over a similar trip at Cartmel in August. But the top weight may struggle to give 18lb to LADY KARINGA. With just one place from five attempts over fences, Lucy Jones' charge is hardly nap material but there is a good chance she's capable of improving on that record if she jumps a little better over these easy fences. Midnight Macarena won over 3m at Chepstow last season and it would be no surprise to see her in the firing-line while Misstree Dancer is 8lb lower than when winning at Newbury in 2010, though remains woefully out of form. Shropshirelass is racing from 7lb out of the handicap.
