Goes well at Warwick (two wins and a second from three attempts) and looks on a lenient mark, 3lb lower than when coming down late on (running creditably) at Aintree in December; has to put a poor run last time behind her but that came in a Listed race and she's respected under optimum conditions back in a handicap.

Has finished placed in four Listed mares' chases (2m4f-3m, good-heavy) in the last year and a bit, the latest at Market Rasen last month; running well when falling at final fence in Aintree last time; can give another good account but Zambella and Kapga De Lily have better form.

Dual hurdle winner in France; 0-4 over fences here but has shown ability, as was the case when second under top weight in a mares' novices' handicap at Newbury (2m4f, soft) nine days ago; should be competitive on these terms, especially if first-time cheekpieces give her a lift.

Took 14 attempts to get off the mark under rules but made it two wins just 11 days later at Carlisle (2m5f, soft); clearly in good order but the RPR of 123 she recorded last time leaves her with a mountain to climb in this much more exalted company.

Point winner who got off the mark at the 14th attempt under rules when landing a handicap chase at Wetherby (2m3f, good to soft) 11 days ago; up 6lb but she scored in good style, despite jumping to the right at times, and she's open to more progress back on a clockwise track; big player.

Has taken form to a new high this winter, with C&D handicap win (soft) from off the pace against the boys in January the highlight; lesser effort behind Pink Legend at Huntingdon last time (2m4f, good to soft) but can gain revenge back at her favourite track; still looks a few pounds short of the best of these.

Has taken her form to a new level in winning back-to-back 2m4f handicaps at Cheltenham (good to soft; soft), the latest a Grade 3 affair against male opposition; favoured by these terms and should be hard to beat.

Won three chases last season, the first over C&D (soft) and the latest in quite valuable series final at Haydock (2m5f, good); slow to find her form this term but gave pretty good account when third over C&D (good to soft) in January and has become very well handicapped.

Experienced chaser whose first of three wins last season was in this race when beating Whatsdastory; might be running back into form, as she was going well when hitting three out at Cheltenham and then hit the frame at Warwick; 3lb beneath last winning mark.
