METHODTOTHEMADNESS (1.55) returns to the scene of last month's Carlisle victory and looks the one to beat in the Mares' Handicap Hurdle.
Lucinda Russell's five-year-old made all wearing a first-time hood to beat southern raider Jelski, subsequently a fine third to favourite Mossy Fen at Aintree last Saturday. Lily's Gem drops in trip following her well-held third to another Russell horse, Bialco, at Perth.
The Graduation Chase is a cracker and MIDNIGHT LEGEND (2.30) should have learned plenty from his debut third over fences here 18 days ago. He was a smart hurdler last season, beating talented Wholestone at Cheltenham on New Year's Day, and is well treated.
