Verdict

Alder Mairi was last seen in a Listed race at Cheltenham in the spring but looks to be on a stiff mark ahead of her return to action. A Little Swifter has a lengthy absence to overcome while Dreambrook Lady is out of sorts and now tried in a hood. Midnight Belle arrives off the back of a third career win at Worcester, however, while Rattlin won twice at Hexham before being pulled up at Carlisle last week. IN BY MIDNIGHT was still very green at Worcester last month but won easily enough in the end. With more improvement anticipated, she may be good enough off a lowly mark.
