Verdict

This looks very competitive and though Miss Mardan probably has the best form she hasn't been seen since May and faces very testing conditions. MIDNIGHT STREAKER finished 11 lengths behind the useful Shesafoxylady on her bumper debut here in October then got closer to the same winner at Navan a month later. She should improve again and is handed the vote though Ballychorus showed up well when making her racecourse debut over hurdles at Navan three weeks ago. There are plenty of others with chances including Peinemma, who showed up well for a long way behind the promising Value At Risk at Fairyhouse.
