Two solid runs in Ireland give LILYWHITE GESTURE strong claims now tackling a handicap. Pretty Miss Mahler will be a threat if handling the switch to chasing and it would be no surprise to see Flycorn in the shake-up.[Jonathan Neesom]

Two chasing efforts, both last month in Ireland, and ran well enough in each; stays well and this trip may be sharp enough but testing course and ground should bring her stamina into play; likely strong candidate.

In good form over hurdles, winning at up to 3m1f and on soft ground; decent effort off this mark latest and chances if taking to chasing on debut (related to winners over fences); yard among the winners.

Strong traveller but finds little when the chips are down and now 0-18 as a chaser; fallen the last twice and cheekpieces discarded.

Once threatened to be useful but career blighted by long absences; fifth in two Cartmel chases this summer and showed enough in both to indicate he might still be capable of landing another win; down 5lb and not dismissed.

Off the mark over fences at the 16th attempt on final start in Ireland but little impact in two outings since arriving in Britain; best form on a sound surface so enough reasons to look elsewhere.
