The day’s second bet is another mare who has struck form, with John Groucott’s MIDNIGHT JADE making all on her first try over fences at Southwell last month (3m1f good to soft). That was a big step up on her previous efforts over hurdles but it wouldn’t have been a total surprise to connections given her sexy jumps pedigree – she’s by King’s Theatre out of a Strong Gale mare – and her placed form in point-to-points.

Her jockey Lee Edwards said after that race: “She got into a lovely rhythm in front. I just increased the tempo all the way to finish and she did it really well. She was hurdling before and that probably wasn’t really her game, she ran well in point-to-points so we thought we would try chasing and she loved it.”

The seven-year-old is stepping up in trip for this afternoon’s 3m5f handicap chase at the Midlands venue (due off 4.50pm) but stamina looks her strong suit – she certainly wasn’t stopping at the finish last time – and the better ground is not a worry either as she finished runner-up in a point on ‘good to firm’. Off just a 6lb higher mark and taking on rivals that are mostly out of form or are a bit long in the tooth, she can go in again.
