A number of these tasted success in bumpers so a market check is advised. Indian Stream's fitness is assured as she won at Worcester last month but a line through Molly's A Diva, who beat her here last winter, suggests she has a bit to find with MIDNIGHT MINX. The latter was unbeaten prior to finishing seventh in a Listed race at Sandown in March and may not have been suited by the heavy ground that day. Last month's Southwell winner Tara Muck has plenty of scope but Dardanella finished last on her hurdling debut at Newton Abbot and needs to improve.
