Form & Verdict

Failed to settle and didn't find much when stepped up in trip on last month's handicap debut at Carlisle (3m1f, soft), finishing down the field; however, there was a bit of promise in that performance and today's good ground could be in her favour; remains lightly raced and could go well.

Two chasing wins, the latest at Newton Abbot in June; satisfactory efforts after until ground too soft when tailed off at Uttoxeter last month; conditions more in her favour now but she's more exposed than some.

Form & Verdict

Not at the top of her game in cheekpieces the last twice and she was a disappointing favourite over C&D 18 days ago on soft ground she should have handled; however, perhaps the switch to blinkers will be a positive and her good January form (including here) puts her firmly in calculations.

Pulled up in a hunter chase last month but gained her second pointing win of the year when beating nine rivals at Hexham nine days ago; likely to need more than that if she's to take this.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent and he was tailed off at Huntingdon last time; however, perhaps the soft going was against him and he was previously runner-up over this C&D (good to soft); could be in the mix back on good ground.

Yet to win on the Flat or over hurdles and looks exposed; in front of Tartan Cookie at Hexham on penultimate start but failed to build on that over 3m3f last time; more needed.

Form & Verdict

66-1 winner in a first-time visor (retained since) over fences at Catterick (3m1f, good to soft) in January; pulled up at Wetherby 17 days ago which is in keeping with his unreliable profile, but he bled from the nose and the heavy ground may not have suited; not written off back over hurdles.

No show in three handicaps towards the end of 2021; good pedigree means it's too soon to be writing him off but he could only be considered if backed on this return from a 74-day break.
