Madam Lilibet has found one too good in both starts over hurdles but was beaten a distance on both occasions and LADY OF VERONA makes more appeal. Lucinda Russell's mare lost her winning chance with a blunder close home at Sedgefield last time but kept on well for second and can open her account in this. Chosen Keys has been placed in point-to-points but is having her first start since 2011 on her debut under Rules while Tinkwood was well beaten on her bumper debut back in the same year. Newcomer Midlem Moss is probably best watched on this occasion.
