Form & Verdict

Displayed significant promise in three maiden/novice hurdles in late 2019 (2m4f-2m7f) and finally built on that on just his second run in nearly two years when winning 2m3f novice handicap hurdle at Ascot (soft) last month in first-time cheekpieces under Thomas Doggrell; up 6lb, but remains unexposed and blinkers now replace cheekpieces.

Unlucky not to have her unbeaten record intact; won the Triumph at Cheltenham last season before landing the Champion Four Year Old Hurdle at this meeting and even better form this campaign, bolting up in the International Hurdle on Cheltenham Trials Day before a facile success when stepped up in trip for the Mares' Hurdle with all four of these rivals in behind; wouldn't be out of place in a Champion Hurdle and return to quicker ground here is fine; no reason to oppose her.

Should be unbeaten (met trouble when second to Gala Marceau at last year's Dublin Racing Festival) and last season's Triumph winner (on soft) looked a mare of the highest class when easing nearly 10l clear of Love Envoi in a 2m1f Grade 2 back here (good to soft) on her reappearance in January; the trip is an unknown but she'll be very hard to beat if her stamina holds.

Not stood much racing of late and seen only twice last season; didn't run badly on first occasion but struggled (albeit on heavy ground) in first-time cheekpieces and tongue-tie at Sandown last December; went without those aids after a wind op on seasonal return at Newton Abbot (3m2f) last month and beaten 37l; the drop in trip may suit, but bit to prove.

Bumper winner here on debut; useful novice hurdler back in 2017-18 but he hasn't stood a huge amount of racing in subsequent seasons; down in the weights now and latest Chepstow third (2m3f, soft) was better; slightly easier grade today and not ruled out.

Put two poor performances behind him when respectable fourth over C&D (heavy) last month and will be fine on today's much faster ground but he's nothing like the force of old and others are much more persuasive.
