Both starts at Brighton, close third upped to 7f last time; hard to rule out further progress but she is taking on several rivals who already have respectable course form.

T: Nicky Henderson

Readily justified favouritism upped to 2m4f at Wincanton (soft) two months ago, registering another Listed win and taking chase record to 3-3; goes into deeper waters in this grade back against male rivals but may well be up to the task, being an improving mare who is 2-2 at Kempton and receives weight all round.

Flat bred but she won twice over hurdles and is 2-2 in this discipline having jumped well en route to clearcut wins at Kempton (2m2f, good) and Exeter (2m1f, good to soft); the highest rated of these on BHA figures and gets a 4yo allowance.

Belatedly opened account at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in March and was third over 1m in his next three races (twice on Polytrack); claims if judged on that evidence but is yet to convince over 1m2f and needs to bounce back from a duff effort on turf three weeks ago.

Took a long time to get off the mark but he hit the target at Wolverhampton (8.6f) in March and has held his form with three thirds since, including on turf at Brighton (1m, good) on his penultimate run; should be in the mix again on this step back up in trip and he's respected.

Looks a winner waiting to happen having finished second in two races at about 7f, beaten half a length at this track latest (Golden Mac third); bred to be suited by this longer trip and has leading claims.
