Form & Verdict

Won twice over hurdles last year and bounced back to form with game success on chasing debut at Worcester (2m7f, good to soft) last month; needs to prove she's effective on a right-handed track but recent 2lb nudge up the weights ought to be manageable.

Now 9lb lower than when completing a 2m7f chase double (good to soft/good) last June but she has a mixed record since and has been pulled up over fences and hurdles on last two starts; goes back up in trip with cheekpieces reapplied but she needs a major revival; one of three runners for yard.

Form & Verdict

Missed last season and is evidently not as good as she once was but proved she retains some ability when second at Fontwell (3m2f, good) on Sunday and has claims here if the first-time blinkers have any sort of positive effect.

Second twice on good ground in spring (3m2f/2m7f) and last month's reappearance run can easily be excused (badly hampered in early stages); has slipped to a good mark but the forecast rain is a worry.

Form & Verdict

Belatedly opened her account April, with clearcut success in small-field chase at Sedgefield (2m5f, good to soft); just a respectable third of five at Ludlow (2m4f, good) last month, though, and has stamina to prove over new trip here.

Winning chaser who was off the mark over hurdles at Plumpton (3m1f, good to soft) in October and was then third on heavy ground at Leicester; well held latterly but these conditions should be more favourable.

Form & Verdict

0-8 over fences but was second off today's mark at Southwell (2m4f, good; first-time cheekpieces) in April and her recent defeat there is probably best overlooked (jockey lost irons after a jumping error); gained both her hurdling wins on right-handed tracks; might be the answer.

100-1 fourth from out of the weights at Warwick (2m5f, good) but she fared less well off 5lb lower at Ludlow; down another 2lb but that penultimate effort is looking flattering.

Form & Verdict

Well below peak form this year but has made the frame in her last three chases, perhaps most notably when second at Plumpton (3m1f, good) two starts ago; swaps usual cheekpieces for first-time visor here and ought to be on the premesis again.

Form & Verdict

Four-time Flat winner who was 1-12 over hurdles; seemed to take pretty well to chasing when second of four at Exeter (3m, good) in March but lacked fluency and was pulled up at Fakenham recently; blinkers refitted today; others look safer.
