Overnight Fame has failed to threaten the winner in a couple of subsequent starts since scoring at Lingfield last January and Midnight Macarena also came up short off today's mark last month having won at Bangor in December. RADHARC NA MARA will have come on for a recent pipe-opener at Ayr and the Irish raider may be up to landing this off his current mark with a conditional taking a further 5lb off his back. Glen Countess has a shout on her best form over fences though she failed to figure in a couple of outings last month.
