Schiaparannie was thrown in at the deep end on her chasing bow at Bangor. She has won here over hurdles and so has Whatsdastory, though the Newland mare is already 0-7 over the larger obstacles. Alpha Carinae was never travelling when a distant third at Kelso but will strip fitter here. UNE DE LA SENIERE (NAP) has a chasing pedigree so did well to win four times over hurdles – she looks the one to beat in this.
