Conditions won't bother her and she made a promising return to turf when second of 12 at Pontefract 16 days ago (1m, heavy); 3lb higher today but still on a winning mark.

Running well on slow turf this autumn, winning at Beverley (7.5f) in September and finishing second at Doncaster last month (7f, heavy); three AW runs came when qualifying for a mark and there's no obvious reason why he wouldn't prove as effective on this surface in time.

Well treated on C&D form up to last June; however, he was below par on the Flat in the second half of last year then failed to threaten on three hurdle runs; may be best watched on this return from a break.

Dual hurdle winner who was respectable third on chasing debut for Adam West in October; subsequently changed hands for 2,000gns; needs to prove he can handle slow ground but it will be interesting to see what his up-and-coming new trainer can do with him.

Fair efforts in AW classified events (1m/1m2f) in final two runs last spring but she's still a maiden after 18 starts and this looks competitive back in a handicap on her comeback; has some work to do for new yard.
