The Pertemps winner returned this season with a straightforward success at Limerick and will be suited by the step back up in trip.

This is tougher, but she seems a progressive type and gets weight off all of her rivals as she bids to land the hat-trick.

Paisley Park is the obvious form selection despite finishing only third behind Indefatigable at Wetherby, with the frustrating Thomas Darby needing to pull more out of the bag to land a contest like this.

NB: BOOTHILL | 1:50pm Ladbrokes Daily Odds Boosts Chase
It was a pleasant pipe-opener for Harry Fry's strapping gelding who was making his first appearance in ten months.

He finished runner-up in two points' so should now benefit for a test over the larger obstacles with that Ascot run under his belt in a warm-looking affair on paper.

Nicky Henderson's Mister Coffey appears a long-awaited debutant over fences but has to give the selection 2lb.
