Tough and consistent mare with an excellent 8-12 strike-rate; edged out Indefatigable in 2m4f handicap here (good to soft) in December, albeit in receipt of 5lb, and followed up in 2m4f mares' Listed race at Sandown (heavy) four weeks later; should give it her usual good shot but there's a suspicion she'll find a few of the Irish too strong.

Tough and consistent mare with an excellent (7-11) strike-rate; won a Listed mares' novice over 2m4f at Cheltenham in the spring, and she dug deep to take a mares' handicap over the same C&D (good to soft) four weeks ago; handles soft ground and should give her usual good account.

In good form switched to the Flat this year, winning AW contests at Kempton the last twice; comfortably held at Kempton on Boxing Day when bidding for a hurdles hat-trick and faces a tough assignment back under this code; acts on soft; overall, he's more exposed than many of these rivals.

Best known as a useful hurdler but is proving to be no mug on the AW either, finishing placed in a couple of similar events earlier this year including when a short head in front of Nayef Road over C&D early last month; has since made the most of a straightforward opportunity in a maiden back here (1m4f) 17 days ago and may have more to offer in this sphere.
