Form & Verdict
Down the field in AW novice event on Flat/stable debut 12 days ago; well treated on best hurdles form but she's 0-18 under rules and chance depends on whether she can raise her game for her new yard.

Won twice over hurdles over C&D earlier this year (good, good to soft); not been in peak form last twice, but is a point winner so quite interesting on chase debut.

Won two in a row with these cheekpieces back on at Sedgefield (2m1f, good/good to soft) in January/February; down the field here (2m4f, good to soft) last time after failing to settle but it'll be no surprise to see a good run now back down in distance.

Made low-key stable debut on the Flat in January but is 2-2 since reverting to hurdling in refitted cheekpieces, with both wins gained at Sedgefield (2m1f, good/good to soft); probably still on a workable mark after latest 6lb rise and today's longer trip won't be a problem; good chance.

Form & Verdict
Perhaps a fortunate winner at Wetherby (2m, soft; stable debut) on Boxing Day as the runner-up might have prevailed but for hanging; however, it was a good effort either way and that rival has boosted the form since; raised only 3lb and Jack Hogan takes off 7lb; shortlisted.
