Form & Verdict

Won her sole bumper (2m, good) and is 2-2 over hurdles after comfortable wins at Bangor (2m, soft) and Uttoxeter (2m, soft); faces a tougher task under a double penalty today and she's tackling a new trip, but this unbeaten 6yo is a useful prospect and is bred to stay this far.

No match for Corey's Courage when runner-up at Uttoxeter (2m, soft) last month and on that bare form a 5lb pull isn't enough to suggest she'll be able to turn the tables; however, she stayed on well last time and is bred to appreciate this step up in trip, so she could improve; not ruled out.

Failed to figure when pulled up at Fakenham on New Year's Day but gave a much better account of herself from the front at Newbury on Sunday (3m, good to firm) until backpedaling from the penultimate flight; this shorter trip could assist assuming those exertions haven't left their mark.

Form & Verdict

Two-time bumper winner (soft/good) who was runner-up over hurdles at Market Rasen (2m4f, good) in November and bounced back from lesser run on soft ground when second in C&D handicap (good), after a wind op; receives weight from her main rivals and could have a say in first-time cheekpieces.

Only fifth under a penalty at Warwick (2m3f, heavy) last month; however, this is an easier race and the return to better ground could help, with her maiden hurdle win at Southwell (2m4f) in January having come on good to soft going; showed promise on good ground in bumpers; key player.
