Form & Verdict
Unexposed 6yo who caused 50-1 shock when fitted with blinkers for handicap hurdle debut here (2m4f, good to soft) last month; needs to bounce back from a duff effort 16 days ago but connections are evidently keen to switch her to fences and move up to 3m; visor tried today.

2-6 since switched to chasing this year, the latter win gained at Ffos Las (3m4f, good to soft) in May; slightly disappointing when only third of five at Hexham (3m, good) last month but may still have more to offer.

Low-mileage 6yo; drew nicely clear to open account at Uttoxeter (3m, soft; first-time cheekpieces) in February and also ran well when second at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good; no cheekpieces) last month; cheekpieces back on today; good chance.

Gave pretty good account when third of six at Market Rasen (2m1f, good) two starts ago but his only win from 36 career starts was gained on the Flat in 2019; 2lb out of the weights here and has stamina to prove on first attempt at 3m; tongue-tie fitted.
