Progressive 6yo who took another step forward with her third in last month's Champion Hurdle (2m, heavy), when nicely clear of the fourth; she's unraced beyond 2m1f but her pedigree provides hope she'll be okay at this trip; top trainer has an excellent record in this race and she's not ruled out.

Didn't quite get home (finished fourth) on soft going when favourite for the Dawn Run on the New course here 12 months ago; performed well in major handicaps the last twice, finishing third to Iberico Lord over C&D then winning at Ascot where she made all and took her record on good ground to 3-3; useful and generally consistent mare who has frame possibilities, getting 7lb from the males.

J: Paul O’Brien

T: Nicky Henderson

First met defeat at the Cheltenham and Aintree festivals; has had to settle for further minor honours this term (2m, soft) in Listed event at Wetherby and the Greatwood at Cheltenham, in the latter 7l third of 15 off today's mark to Iberico Lord; they were creditable efforts in form terms but she needs a bit extra if she's to take a race of today's quality.

11st 10lb

J: James Bowen

T: Nicky Henderson

First met defeat at the Cheltenham (Grade 2 Mares' Novice) and Aintree (Grade 1 novice) festivals, still making the frame but perhaps not living up to star potential shown in February; tired late on and seen off by the Mares' Novice winner once again when they reappeared at Wetherby (2m, soft) 15 days ago, but creditable on form and it's possible that she'll have come on since that run; has to be considered on this high-profile handicap debut.
