MISS TENACIOUS hasn't done a great deal wrong since returning to action in December. Fast ground holds no fears for Ron Hodges' mare and she should be good enough to concede weight to her three rivals. Hill Forts Gloria appears to have gone backwards since finishing third at Fontwell in November while Wilde Ruby hasn't shown much ability over hurdles. Shantou Breeze wasn't disgraced at big odds at Lingfield last time, however, so could be the one for forecast-backers.
