Form & Verdict

Has not won since February 2020 and has a mixed record this season but she was a close third in a higher grade at Chepstow (2m3f, soft) on her penultimate run; on same mark here and a big player if she can recapture that form; tongue-tie added.

Responded well to the addition of a tongue-tie to win at Leicester (2m4f, soft) in February but she failed to repeat the form there next time; well-held fourth of six in this race last year; others preferred.

Well handicapped on old form but, following a long absence, was soundly beaten in three chases for new stable in the autumn; needs to be revitalised by today's return to hurdling.

Form & Verdict

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.

Dual chase winner (2m4f/3m) on heavy ground last winter but she lost her way in final two runs last season and was pulled up on her return in December; now 3lb lower than for last win but she needs to turn things around in first-time cheekpieces.

Four-time hurdle winner at up to 2m5f (including on soft); has been well held switched to chasing in last two runs and she jumped to the left at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) last time; still early days in this sphere but has something to prove.

Form & Verdict

10yo who won at Newton Abbot (same 2m5f race for second year running) on her return in October; looked fortunate in that race (leader fell at last) but she backed that up with a second at Ffos Las and had an excuse when stepped up to 3m at Exeter last time; still looks on a workable mark and respected on this drop back in trip.

Won at Newton Abbot (same 2m5f race for second year running) in October and creditable second at Ffos Las (2m3f) four weeks later, both in the mud; an in-form candidate but with a big question mark over her stamina, as she flopped on sole attempt at 2m6f and has never been further.

J: Tom O’Brien

T: Philip Hobbs

Returned from a summer break to repeat her previous season's victory in a 2m5f handicap chase at Newton Abbot (heavy) last month, beating Chinwag by 4l; she would probably have been beaten by Chinwag had that rival not been hampered by a faller at the last, but Arian is up only 1lb and isn't ruled out.
