Irish raider Posh Bird's best run run over fences was over 3m4f at Downpatrick and she may not get the stamina test she requires here. Identity Parade took part in that historical event at Towcester which was declared void when all four runners fell. She had earlier won very easily at Carlisle and should make a bold bid to defy her big weight. Point-to-point winner Streamtown gained her first success under Rules when battling to victory at Sedgefield and though that was over hurdles there is no reason why she shouldn't be at least as effective over regulation fences. More Equity is still a maiden over fences after 11 starts but has gone close on several occasions but this can go to FLIGHTY MIST, who is on a hat-trick after two victories at Sedgefield where she has looked very progressive.
