Form & Verdict
Came good over hurdles at third attempt, at Wincanton (1m7f, soft) in February; just a respectable sixth on last month's handicap debut at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft) but could quite plausibly have untapped potential over today's longer trip.

Form & Verdict
Won a division of this race last year (good to soft) and doubled her hurdling tally at Huntingdon (3m1f, soft) last month; probably still on a workable mark but her Wetherby fourth three weeks ago was a rather laboured effort, and drying ground may not be ideal for her.

Struggled on first two starts but appeared to take big step forward when third of four at Chepstow (2m7f, good to soft) in first-time cheekpieces last month; it's very tricky to nail down what that form is worth but he's open to further progress in handicaps.
