Form & Verdict

Won a bumper last season and justified favouritism with ready success on hurdling debut at Worcester (2m, soft) in October; had to settle for third on next outing then found Taunton Listed race too hot but sets the form standard here.

Two hurdle wins (both 2m, soft and good to soft) last season; sent chasing this season but that plan quickly aborted after two non-completions; she's been much more competitive back hurdling, second at Southwell (2m, good) before finding 3m just stretching her at Ludlow 17 days ago; not ruled out back down in trip.

Can make the running; won two novice hurdles last term and, after two early departures over fences, she went down by a neck in five-runner handicap at Southwell in December latest when back over hurdles; could have more to offer but those three most notable results were all over 2m, so this trip requires some guesswork; 7lb claimer enlisted.

Fair Flat-racer who outran 50-1 odds when third of 17 on hurdling debut at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) in November; below that form and safely held on soft ground last month but ought to be better suited by today's quicker conditions; enters calculations.
