POSH TRISH can be forgiven a modest showing in the Mares' Novices' event at the festival here last month and get back on track for Paul Nicholls and Harry Cobden. Progressive prior to that heavy defeat, the six-year-old didn't seem to pick up on the tacky surface, and the return to decent ground can see her bounce back to winning ways. Indefatigable outran lofty odds to finish fifth in the same race and warrants respect, but she was beaten by the selection at Taunton in December. Hat-trick seeker The Cull Bank could prove best of the remainder.

Kupatana had failed to complete three of her four previous outings before scoring at Kelso last month under a fine Sean Bowen ride, while Little Miss Poet beat her by seven lengths at Ludlow in January before just coming up short at Wetherby in a three-runner contest a few weeks later. GRACEFUL LEGEND was third on that day, but she seemed unsuited by the dawdling pace and got back on track when scoring in a bigger field at Newbury last time. A 5lb rise doesn't look too harsh for that and she could be one to follow after shedding the maiden tag over fences.

CAP SOLEIL looked in need of the outing when down the field here in the Mares' Hurdle 37 days ago and she can be given another opportunity for the Fergal O'Brien team. Winning a Grade 1 was always going to be a big ask first time out, but she was previously second in the novice event at the Festival behind Laurina and should appreciate these calmer shores. Casablanca Mix is talented and showed up well for a long way when third in a Listed contest over fences at Huntingdon in January (the runner-up was second in the Grand National), while Irish raider Agusta Gold was third in a Grade 3 at Limerick last time and is respected on that form.

Pretty useful hurdler who has acquitted herself well over fences, comfortably landing a Wincanton handicap in January. Not disgraced next 2 starts and trip should suit.

Produced a career best when successful over fences at Warwick last month (beat Sheneededtherun) and easy to forgive next start there over hurdles (ridden too aggressively). Should bounce back.

Winner of three hurdle races, two chases and a point-to-point from 2m 3f to 3m 5f on ground varying from good to firm to soft. Pulled up 2 out when 17-2 at Warwick over 3m 2f (good) in a hurdle race won by Little Millie earlier this month on her latest outing. Has won twice at Warwick this season.

AUNTY ANN ran well when fourth in the Badger Ales Trophy at Wincanton on her most recent start and makes plenty of appeal returning from a winter break as she drops into a grade in which she won two starts ago (also at the Somerset track). Molly Childers shaped as though she would be more suited by a stiffer test of stamina when fourth over 3m at Warwick last month, while Goodnight Charlie may prove more at home over fences having pulled up over timber at Warwick eight days ago.
