Form & Verdict

Irish bumper winner who has impressed in winning all three hurdles for her new connections, posting her best RPR yet (130) in disposing of a good field at Lingfield (2m, heavy; made most); has won over 2m5f so this longer trip won't bother her at all; hard to fault.

Raced mainly on soft/heavy (withdrawn due to good ground once); smart mare whose record is 8-12 and who performed very well (first/second) at the last two Cheltenham Festivals; may be back on song with Sandown reappearance under her belt; has the best chance at the weights.

Picked up a stress fracture at Punchestown (soundly beaten) when last seen but has made a full recovery; has a solid/progressive record (at 2m-2m5f) otherwise and career record is 8-11; ran well behind Honeysuckle in a strong Mares' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival (soft) two starts ago; 3-3 at Sandown, including a win on this card last year; remains of major interest.

Heavy-ground bumper winner and was runner-up in a Listed race here last March; lots of scope for hurdling and ran out a ready winner on her second attempt at Newbury (2m4f, good to soft) a month ago; very promising.

Relinquished her unbeaten record over hurdles when falling late on at Newbury (competitive at the time) but showed no ill effects when second to Haute Estime at Haydock (2m3f, soft), a race she would have won on another day, having been caught out of her ground; should really reverse the placings on 5lb better terms.

Nina The Terrier

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Alan King

Has three hurdles wins to her name and she's looked as good as ever this season, far from disgraced when fifth of 13 in the Greatwood at Cheltenham (2m, good to soft) in November; this race is probably less competitive and returning to 2m4f may suit; each-way claims.

Nina The Terrier

J: Tom Bellamy

Improvement is needed if she's to win this competitive handicap off her current mark, and a longer trip may be preferable; however, the stiff track provides some compensation and she was a good second to Sonigino (who has followed up) at Chepstow (2m, good) last month; each-way claims.

Form & Verdict

Improving hurdler; most recently just lasted home from Nina The Terrier in a Listed event at Haydock (2m3f, soft); was aided by getting first run on the second and now 5lb worse off; might do well to confirm the placings.

Had given some indications that a long-distance challenge might suit and, in a first-time tongue-tie after wind surgery, she was only 4l away over 3m5f at Bangor two months ago (heavy; Duke Of Deception runner-up); this now looks the way forward with her; respected.

Chase win last March was over 2m4f but she's a stout stayer; not yet lived up to her hurdle promise since chasing but still has potential, dropped 5lb since her first completion this winter, and in a lower grade.

Form & Verdict

Won a bumper on heavy and made all the running in a 2m2f novice hurdle for mares at Exeter in December; however, she was nearly 20l behind Speech Bubble at Newbury and that was the third time she's finished adrift of the winner; probably placed at best.

First (good to soft) and second (heavy) in two French hurdles before changing hands for 120,000euros; only fourth of six in a Listed race at Doncaster three weeks ago but good ground may not have been ideal and she could have settled better; with that in mind, a hood looks an interesting addition.
