Clearly is effective at this track (heavy ground C&D winner from a 9lb lower mark last December); slightly outpaced coming up the hill before keeping on strongly when a close third to Johnson's Blue and Dillarchie here latest; 2lb higher; is likely to be suited by any further rain.

Flew the final flight and clung on most determinedly to spring a 28-1 surprise on recent debut for Simon West (Sedgefield; 3m3f soft); having been 10lb out of the handicap last time she's able to race off 3lb lower today under a 7lb penalty, and the forecast better ground should be fine.

Not at best when reverting to hurdling at Sedgefield recently but was placed in a marathon chase two starts ago and had been fairly consistent over hurdles before that; seems versatile regarding ground and has slipped to a good mark; one to consider.
