J: Harry Skelton

T: Dan Skelton

Had a bleak midwinter but showed clear signs of a revival when a close sixth of 11 at Kempton (2m5f, good to soft) four weeks ago; that should have put her spot-on for a repeat bid for this race, which she won in convincing fashion off 6lb lower 12 months ago; handles soft ground, unraced on heavy; commands major respect attempting to make it 3-3 at Aintree.

Tailed off when favourite for Grade 1 Long Walk at Ascot in December (failed to settle) and no return to form in Sandown handicap last month; however, this mare was highly progressive previously, including a C&D win last January in the ultra-competitive Lanzarote, and she's not written off.

Flopped badly as favourite for the Group 1 Long Walk at Ascot six weeks ago when returned to 3m, having raced freely; however, very progressive otherwise (form figures of 2122111 previously), does stay 3m and may well bounce back provided she settles better.
