Gained her only success at Hereford in November (first time in a visor) and best effort since when runner-up to a gambled-on winner at Huntingdon last month (clear of the rest); made the running there and similar tactics could see her go close again.

Won over 3m on good at Hereford in November in a first-time visor (kept since) and she returned to form when close third at Fakenham (2m7f, soft) on latest start; needs extra and she has a mixed record of late.

Form & Verdict
Returned to form to win on stable debut at Exeter (2m5f, good to soft) in November; below that level on next two outings and has fitness to prove after 139-day break but will appreciate today's drop back in grade and may yet have more to offer for Dan Skelton.

Martha Brae

11st 3lb

J: Bridget Andrews

T: Dan Skelton

Rather lost her way for Warren Greatrex, but she showed the benefit of a change of scenery when winning in a big field at Exeter (2m6f, soft; well-backed favourite) 18 days ago, asserting run-in; that looks a solid piece of form and she may well defy an 8lb rise in the weights.

Up in the weights after a couple of wins in the summer; didn't take to cheekpieces last time but those are quickly ditched and she is only 1lb higher than for her last success; in the mix if the ground remains good.
