Form & Verdict
Point winner who got off the mark at the 14th attempt under rules when landing a handicap chase at Wetherby (2m3f, good to soft) 11 days ago; up 6lb but she scored in good style, despite jumping to the right at times, and she's open to more progress back on a clockwise track; big player.

Took 14 attempts to get off the mark under rules but made it two wins just 11 days later at Carlisle (2m5f, soft); clearly in good order but the RPR of 123 she recorded last time leaves her with a mountain to climb in this much more exalted company.

Form & Verdict
Four hurdle wins at up to 2m4f but she's been out of sorts since last success in March 2021; returns to chasing off 15lb lower than for last win but she has form figures of 77P5 in this sphere and has plenty to prove.

Four-time hurdle winner who ran her best race over fences so far when a fair second at Carlisle (2m5f, soft) last month; jumped to her left there so this way round may prove more suitable; claims.

OUR TIP

Form: P-U115 D

W: 11st 12lb

11 yo Mare

OR: 120

Form & Verdict
Scored at Lingfield (2m4f, heavy) in December and followed up with an emphatic win in a veterans' chase at Warwick (3m, heavy) on New Year's Eve; her good spell came to a halt at Wetherby but that was behind a major improver and she still looks feasibly treated on her penultimate form; dangerous if she can bounce back.

Well-beaten last of three runners at Taunton 19 days ago; mostly respectable form otherwise this season, notably two wins (2m4f/3m) in December and creditable third at Leicester on penultimate outing; won 2015 bumper on good ground, raced mainly on softer since.

Won two heavy-ground chases in December (2m4f/3m) and comes here after very respectable third at Leicester (2m4f, soft) last month; benefits from a recent 2lb drop and is likely to be on the premises again.

Ended last year with wins on heavy ground at Lingfield (2m4f) and Warwick (3m) but was disappointing at Wetherby in hat-trick bid and her effort flattened out when third of five at Carlisle last time; bit to prove again and needs to get back right near her best.

Form & Verdict
Dual hurdle winner who is 0-6 over fences and was held when taking a heavy fall at Cork (2m4f, heavy) on her return last month; back in a handicap now but it has been a long time since she's posed a serious threat and others are more convincing; yard also runs Lily's Gem.

Seems to have lost her way over fences of late and wasn't in inspiring form when last seen over timber either; no wins since 2018 and best watched for now.

Form & Verdict
Won a mares' novice hurdle here (2m3f, soft) in February 2020 but she's 0-10 since and has finished tailed off switched to fences in last two starts; this is more realistic back in a handicap but she didn't jump well last time and has questions to answer.

Soundly beaten in all five chases in December-March and now reverts to hurdling; not obviously well handicapped in this sphere and has a lot more to prove than some of these; cheekpieces discarded after one use.
