Fairly useful Flat racer who lost out only by a head on handicap hurdle debut at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) a week ago and gets another chance off the same mark here; has a tendency to hang left under pressure but still commands respect.

Drifted badly left towards the stands' rail at Kempton (1m3f, AW; third start) two weeks ago but was well on top at the finish and may build on that success; unexposed filly making her handicap debut.

Dual Flat winner (1m/2m) for Jedd O'Keeffe; has shown ability over hurdles since switching to Peter Bowen, none more so than when placed over 2m here (mares' novice) in January, but probably needs to raise her game further over this new trip in order to be competitive on handicap debut.
