Verdict

MIDNIGHT BLISS completed a hat-trick of point-to-point victories before winning both starts to date over regulation fences. She's 8lb higher on her return to action but there should be more to come from Caroline Fryer's mare and she's preferred to Corner Creek. The latter won over 3m here in October but has struggled in a couple of subsequent starts while Packettotherafters was placed over the same distance here in September but has failed to complete either side of that. Apachee Prince slips further down the weights and is preferred of the remainder with Richard Johnson taking over the reins.
