Midnight Minx looks to add to her recent run
BRITAIN'S only jumping is now restricted to Catterick with Chepstow being washed away and Anthony Honeball's Midnight Minx can make the trip from the West Country pay off with success in the Stockton Mares' Bumper.
She is unbeaten in two attempts in this sphere following victories at Folkestone and Kempton, where she dug very deep in the closing stages to see off the much more experienced Call Me A Star.
Although Midnight Minx has not been seen in public since, fitness is not usually an issue with Honeyball's horses and she can make it three from three at the expense of Flemens Pride.
Honeyball and jockey Rachael Green have a decent chance of initiating a two-timer with Marie Des Anges in the Go Racing In Yorkshire Novices Chase where she is due to receive valuable allowances from her rivals.

The five-year-old mare made a great start to her new career over fences when scoring well at Market Rasen on Boxing Day, where she had to overcome the odd novice error at a course that can catch inexperienced horses out.
She has come on for the outing and should not be too bothered about soft ground as she scored on a testing surface at Worcester over the summer when hurdling.
Malcolm Jefferson is one of the shrewdest trainers in the North and King Of The Wolds can continue his winning ways in the EBF National Hunt Novices Hurdle following his all the way call at Wetherby last month.
The step up in trip looks sure to suit the improving six-year-old and he can take this contest before being aimed at the final of the race at Sandown at the beginning of March.
Jonjo O'Neill, pictured, sends a team to the Yorkshire circuit and the best of them could well be Kandari who will be partnered by Tony McCoy in the Dine And View At Catterick Races Handicap Chase.
The nine-year-old might well have finished closer at Taunton last time but for stumbling badly at a crucial stage on the home turn. Given that was his first try since September there might well be some improvement to come .
