Graffiti Art's last run was in a Listed race at Sandown. Gwendoliner was second on her debut at Southwell while Maxford Lady won a point-to-point in December but several newcomers in this catch the eye on breeding. A market check is advised but Molo is related to winning jumpers, as is Gabriella Rose. Call Me Kate is also interesting but her bloodline suggests she'll come into her own when tackling longer trips. SAMEDI SOIR is a half-sister to winning chaser Grey Missile and her stable has a good record here in bumpers - she looks a likely type for a race like this.
