Form & Verdict
Began chasing career with two disappointing runs for Denise Foster last summer and not seen again since but was placed on handicap hurdle debut at Fairyhouse (2m4f, soft) last March and still has very low mileage; will need to be taken very seriously if strong in the betting here.

Just 1-17 over hurdles but was back in peak form when third (just behind Rubytwo) off today's mark in quite valuable series final at Musselburgh (2m4f, good) last month and will be right in the thick of things if able to replicate that performance here.

Made the frame on first four starts for Donald McCain last year and returned from seven-month layoff to score by over 9l at Carlisle (2m1f, good) last month; today's race is stronger but recent 6lb rise doesn't look excessive and she'll be fine over this longer trip; respected.

Dual hurdle winner who scored by 9l at Carlisle (2m1f, good) on her return in March; well-held third off this revised mark at Perth last month but she may have done too much too soon on that step back up to 2m4f; still looks feasibly treated on her penultimate form and respected back in trip.

Form & Verdict
Didn't fire at Naas three weeks ago and is now 0-8 over hurdles but was in good form beforehand, perhaps most notably when second of 11 at Down Royal (2m, yielding) in January; stays 2m4f and can pose a threat here if back on song.

First-time visor replaced cheekpieces when she was back to life for 33-1 win at Doncaster (2m3f, good) three weeks ago; finished strongly that day and won over nearly 2m5f on soft ground last May, but she underperformed when tried under rules at 2m6f (twice) and 3m (once).

Unbeaten mare, having won sole bumper start and three novice hurdles; defied a double penalty at Doncaster (2m3f, soft) most recently, confirming that she's a talented sort; with bubble yet to be burst, she's a very interesting contender on handicap debut.

Won her sole bumper (2m, good) and is 2-2 over hurdles after comfortable wins at Bangor (2m, soft) and Uttoxeter (2m, soft); faces a tougher task under a double penalty today and she's tackling a new trip, but this unbeaten 6yo is a useful prospect and is bred to stay this far.

Found a rich seam of form earlier in the year winning three on the spin, including gamely over C&D (good to soft; from a 3lb lower mark); has seemingly went off the boil since - well held the last twice (here and Perth) - and mightn't necessarily appreciate the forecast quick ground.

Two wins last month (2m4f, soft/heavy) and defied new mark to land hat-trick over C&D (good to soft) last Tuesday; had to work hard last time so may be vulnerable under a 7lb penalty, and she's unproven on good going, but she remains well treated on old form and could have more left in the tank.
