Irish bumper winner whose maiden win at Leicester was franked earlier this week and she then made light work of a penalty at Warwick (2m5f), when looking at home on the heavy ground; clearly above average and much respected.

Raced mainly on soft/heavy (withdrawn due to good ground once); smart mare whose record is 8-12 and who performed very well (first/second) at the last two Cheltenham Festivals; may be back on song with Sandown reappearance under her belt; has the best chance at the weights.

Impressed in winning a Carlisle maiden by more than 7l and she readily swept aside a high-profile recruit off the Flat at Leicester; early signs very encouraging and she's bred to improve with her racing; both runs on good to soft.

Lightly raced since finishing second to the classy Love Envoi in the novice hurdle for mares on this card in 2022 and was fourth to the same mare at that season's Cheltenham Festival; her second run back from a long absence when narrowly winning a 2m4f handicap at Cheltenham (soft) last month and a 4lb rise isn't too damaging; unraced over this far but has the Stayers' Hurdle entry.

Absent 613 days but co-favourite when soundly beaten on chase debut at Exeter last month; needs to prove how much ability she retains but she was fourth in the Grade 2 Mares' Novices' Hurdle at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival (2m1f, soft) and looked a good prospect at that stage.

Won two bumpers before holding her own in stronger company; plenty to like about how she opened her hurdling account at the second attempt at Chepstow (soft) earlier this week, albeit at the expense of modest opposition; entitled to have some say.

Has improved over fences this season, initially in mares' events over 2m1f at Exeter (good to soft and soft) and latterly only just edged out in a novice handicap there last month; may yet do better as a chaser but she can't take advantage of her current mark, from 6lb out of the weights.

Progressive form in bumpers and was a comfortable winner on her hurdling debut here when the ground was also heavy; no match for Rainyday Woman at Taunton but a 3lb pull offers some hope of making more of a race of it and she'll handle conditions.

Bumper (good) and novice hurdle (heavy) winner who built upon previous chasing promise when winning in first-time visor (retained) at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) last month; had only three rivals to beat and needs to jump better now tackling males in a warmer race, but she could continue improve.

Her second at Warwick in November to last week's Thurles Listed winner Marsh Wren now reads well and she returned to something approaching that form when second off this mark at Carlisle (2m5f, soft) last time; doesn't always look the easiest of rides and kept jumping left last time - which she wouldn't want to repeat here - but the new visor (on for cheekpieces) may help in that respect; form claims are crystal clear.
