Form & Verdict

Bounced back quickly from low-key seasonal debut when winning at Newbury (2m, soft) in December and finished second off today's mark there on both subsequent outings (2m, good to soft/3m, soft); remains unexposed beyond 2m3f and should be fine on today's ground; good chance.

Respectable second in mares' handicap here last month, taking Newbury form figures (all over 2m) to 1112; won over 2m3f at Chepstow (good) last spring but has stamina to prove now tackling 3m.

T: Nicky Henderson

3-3 at Newbury and 4-6 overall so she's proving a fine servant to connections; made the running and rallied to beat Voice Of Calm a head, with Megan and Pogo I Am chasing them home, over C&D (soft) last month; has an excellent attitude and high on the list off a 2lb higher mark.

9 yo Mare

OR: 130

Form & Verdict

Useful under all codes when on song and was placed in two valuable handicaps at last summer's Galway festival (one on the Flat, one over hurdles); will be suited by today's trip/ground but we haven't seen her since a disappointing run in October.

Form & Verdict

Placed in good-ground Listed bumper in December and built upon promising hurdle debut when short-odds winner of Huntingdon maiden (2m4f, soft) last month; tackles much stronger opposition in this handicap but is open to any amount of improvement now back on a sound surface.

Dual course winner, latterly off 3lb higher over C&D (soft) just under a year ago; out of form this season, though, and needs to turn a corner; wore cheekpieces the last twice; visor tried today.

Now back on same mark as for hard-fought win at Huntingdon (3m1f, soft) last March but dropped out of contention very tamely on final two starts last year (cheekpieces added last time) and comes here with a point to prove.

Ended last season in good form, most notably when winning at Huntingdon (3m1f, soft); made a satisfactory reappearance last month but dropped out very quickly after making the running at Market Rasen on latest outing and needs to put that performance behind her; sports first-time cheekpieces.
