Form & Verdict

0-13 over fences for John Groucott and pulled up at Bangor last time; however, she runs off a career-low mark after a break on her debut for a leading yard and could improve; no forlorn hope but softer ground suits.

1-21 over fences (won over 2m7f, soft); well below par in three starts since last February; well treated based on her form of this time last year; not written off but revival needed.

Form & Verdict

Best run last season when splitting two subsequent winners in second of ten over 3m1f at Hereford in December and ran respectably in 3m6f Devon National in February; bled from the nose and lost a shoe when pulled up in March on last start (favourite) and not out of this on return.

Ballybough Nora

J: Ben Godfrey

T: Jeremy Scott

Much better known as a chaser now but it's worth noting she won a C&D hurdle off 1lb higher in April 2019; made pleasing seasonal debut when second over fences at Worcester (2m7f, soft) yesterday; will warrant consideration if she turns up here.

Form & Verdict

Won 3m Fakenham handicap hurdle in January 2020; just three starts over fences since and good second of 13 behind a subsequent winner in 3m handicap chase at Bangor (good) last month on return from almost a year off; up 5lb and goes well fresh, so may not improve, but clear claims.

Won a Fakenham handicap hurdle (3m, good to soft) in January 2020 when 3lb lower; has been very competitive in her two chase starts since, both when 2lb higher; not seen for almost a year; would be a big player if ready after her absence.

Form & Verdict

Signed off for Gordon Elliott in the doldrums but best of seven runs for current trainer when second of 15 in 2m4f handicap chase at this course (good) in April, with tongue-tie and cheekpieces combination first time; up 4lb and not certain to stay 2m7f but probably capable of better.

0-5 over fences but was second of 15 in first-time cheekpieces at Worcester (2m4f, good) last April; returned from break with three lesser efforts in the autumn but looked stretched by 3m at Market Rasen last time and ought to benefit from today's drop back in trip.

Runner-up at Worcester off a 2lb higher mark in April; well beaten in both runs after a summer break and she is not sure to appreciate stepping up to 3m given her Flat pedigree.

J: William Kennedy

T: Ian Williams

Flat and hurdle winner who ran well when second of 15 at Worcester (2m4f, good) in April in her second chase; firmly in calculations on that form but she's inconsistent and was pulled up at Worcester (2m7f, soft) on reappearance, when in trouble some way out on ground she should have handled.
