Stratford bumper winner GARNOCK was let down by her jumping at Towcester but clearly has an engine and she could come out on top here if handling the obstacles a little better today. In By Midnight drops back in trip having been well beaten so far over further. She could also play a part and Agent Fedora is surely better than she showed at Southwell in May. Siksika makes her debut over hurdles and may need the experience but can't be ruled out in a modest affair and has more scope than Benefique Royale.
