Form & Verdict

Made it 3-6 over hurdles when winning Ludlow handicap (2m5f, good to soft) last Wednesday; stayed well on the Flat (won over 2m in that sphere) so today's step up in trip could prompt further improvement, and this unexposed 5yo is a key player under a 7lb penalty.

Has a slight doubt over her current form, based on her results over jumps this year; however, won this contest (off 4lb lower; good ground) in 2022 when last seen on the Flat and remains unexposed in this sphere; acts on soft; has to be feared back here.

J: Miss Lucy Turner

Her greatest test of stamina was a hurdles win (3m2f, soft) and she also won the 2m2f Chester Plate on Flat; none of her form gives her a say in this, however, and soundly beaten this season in her two starts over fences.

Form & Verdict

Listed bumper winner who was initially expensive to follow over hurdles, but things clicked on handicap debut at Chepstow in November when she was upped to 2m7f (soft) in first-time blinkers; made all in good style and a 7lb rise may not prevent a follow up if the headgear maintains its effect.

Made all in Listed mares' hurdle at Kempton (3m, good to soft) in November and was runner-up (beaten 12l) in another at Haydock the last time, which was a good run back at 2m3f (heavy); should give her running but others might be better in.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing in Ascot Grade 2 last time even allowing for that being a tough assignment; in good form previously, however, with a handicap win (3m, heavy) then a Listed second (2m4f, heavy), and she can be in the mix if bouncing back; testing ground brings out the best in her.

Raced mainly on soft/heavy (below-par efforts on good/good to soft came over fences); progressive over hurdles, most recently clear second in Sandown Listed race (2m4f) when attempting to follow up her Ffos Las handicap win (3m); may have even more to offer; interesting.

Didn't shine on her two chase starts this season but 4-6 over hurdles, running a career best when scoring in clearcut style in handicap at Ffos Las (3m, heavy) last month; also won Grade 2 novice over this C&D last winter; should give her running, although others have stronger claims on form.

Won when back up to 3m at Kempton (3m, soft) in December and readily followed up at Exeter (2m7f, soft) on Sunday; unexposed over staying trips and strong claims under a 7lb penalty if this doesn't come too soon.

Had interesting times over fences, a wide-margin winner on one occasion from five attempts but pulled up three times and finished remote on the other; dropped right out on return to hurdles in November but she did run well in this race in 2020 before winning it the following year and is lower in the weights than for either of those runs; cannot ignore.

A case of all or nothing over fences earlier in the year, a 41l success at Bangor (3m, good to soft) in March surrounded by four modest efforts; has dropped 4lb lower than when last winning over hurdles, though, and won't have a problem with the trip or likely testing ground; shortlisted.
