Form & Verdict
Capitalised upon some help from the handicapper when winning over 2m here (good) last month and is also very effective over 2m4f; probably would have preferred a stronger pace when fifth of six here (2m, good) ten days ago; unlikely to be far away.

Form & Verdict
Very well handicapped on older form but finished about 11l behind Malangen after making the running here (2m, good) three weeks ago and needs a better performance today; the longer trip won't be a problem, though.

Course winner who is 6lb lower than when a fair fourth in this race last year; he's one to watch in the betting but he's been absent since and takes on some bang-in-form rivals on his return.

Won by 8l on hurdle debut in November 2020 but lightly raced and disappointing since; pulled up (albeit on heavy ground) when last seen in December; considered only if lively in the betting here.

Got off to a winning start over hurdles at Hexham last November; only three runs since, but she wasn't disgraced after eight months off when fifth in 2m1f Carlisle handicap last time; she can't be discounted if building on that effort.
