GREAT OAK has won twice on the Flat and three times over fences. She finished tailed off on her debut for Tim Vaughan over the larger obstacles at Cheltenham but was third over timber in a Down Royal handicap on her previous start and should be too good for these. Emily's Flyer looks to be on the upgrade but has a penalty for her victory at Exeter and Binowagh Bay also carries extra for winning a Cartmel seller last month. Beverley Beck has won a point-to-point but her record under Rules is abysmal.
