Verdict

Silver Chief has been placed in three of her six starts over fences and that experience should stand her in good stead. But dual hurdles winner ELSIE is rated much higher than the latter over timber and Thomas Mullins' mare may prove too good if taking to the larger obstacles. Royal Flight is another hurdles winner making her debut over fences and is related to a winning chaser but Missed Cloud and Shesaportrait are hard to fancy on what little they have shown so far.
