Timeform examine this quite valuable 21-furlong handicap chase...
"Miss Tenacious produced a career best when making all in a seven-runner affair here in November. Let down by her jumping when disappointing the following month but type to bounce back quickly. Respected."

Time To Think got back on the up last spring, winning handicap chases at Fontwell and Chepstow. Recipient of a vintage A P McCoy ride when scoring at Warwick last month but a bit more required off her new mark.
Opera Og has been successful three times over fences, latest one after a long absence in March. Creditable efforts when twice placed in handicaps since, but can finish weakly and fell at the first last time.
Vif Argent was a hurdle/chase winner in France but has been well held all four outings in Britain. Is dropping down the weights and blinkers given a go now but still has plenty to prove. Still worth a look in the betting.
Roll The Dice showed marked improvement when winning at Ludlow in December 2012, and after three placed efforts he went in again over C&D when last seen in April. May have more to come over fences and conditions to suit.
1. Miss Tenacious
2. Roll The Dice
3. Opera Og
Timeform view: Miss Tenacious wasn't at her best last time but she does go well here, stays this far and can quickly bounce back in this field. Roll The Dice and Opera Og look set to provide the stiffest resistance but the first-time blinkers might revive Vif Argent and he does need a look in the market.
