Point winner (2m4f, good); respectable efforts against her own sex in Wetherby bumper (fourth over 2m) and Exeter novice hurdle (second over 2m2f) for new yard; leading player at the weights, getting 7lb from the males.

Won a British maiden point (2m4f, good) in May on her second start and kept on for a fair fourth on last month's bumper debut at Wetherby (2m, good), having changed hands for £25,000; open to improvement over today's extra yardage on her first hurdle start and she's one to consider.

Half-sister to 2m7f chase winner Sonny The One; dam 2m4f-2m7f hurdle/chase winner; justified favouritism in her second point (2m4f, good) in May before changing hands for £25,000 later that month; stablemate of Peerless Beauty and it will be interesting to see how she figures in market on rules debut.

First foal; dam unraced sister to bumper and high-class 2m3f-3m1f hurdle/chase winner Time For Rupert and very useful bumper and 2m6f hurdle/chase winner Minella Fair; bought for £54,000 after finishing second in an Irish point; interesting to see what the betting makes of her on rules debut.

Bought for £54,000 after finishing second in an Irish point but yet to make her mark over hurdles and was a fading fifth on her handicap debut at Newton Abbot (2m2f, good; 18-1) two weeks ago; still unexposed but she needs a transformation on this drop back in trip.

Has a useful Flat pedigree but never made the track for Richard Hannon; got going all too late when runner-up at Uttoxeter in October but she soon made amends later that month with her best form yet to beat 17 rivals here; has to be of interest with Rachael Blackmore booked; has only raced on good ground to date.

Half-sister to Ishkhara Lady, who dead-heated in this race for Harry Fry 12 months ago; made the perfect start in 12-runner race at Taunton (soft; 5-1) in March, overcoming greenness; subsequently had wind surgery; open to any amount of improvement and might be the answer.

Won a Taunton bumper (2m, soft) one year ago; had wind surgery last summer and although her two runs over hurdles (2m3f and 1m7f) this term did not live up to that debut promise, she's still had plenty to learn and might warm to her task with experience.

Still likely plenty of potential to untap, considering how inexperienced she looked both in landing a Taunton bumper on debut a year ago and in her staying-on Lingfield hurdles sixth in November (2m3f, good to soft; only start since wind surgery); drop back in trip no obvious concern, and demands consideration.
