Form & Verdict

Now only 2lb higher than when keeping on strongly to win at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good) last summer and gave good account when third over that C&D in refitted blinkers last month; today's longer trip will suit; likely contender.

Returned to form to win four-runner Newton Abbot race (2m2f, good) in June and is still on a good mark but two poor performances have followed and it's hard to know what to expect today.

Form & Verdict

Won twice over hurdles last year (handicap/seller) and returned from layoff with two very respectable runs at Cartmel last month (both 2m1f, good to soft); tries a new trip and runs off 2lb lower mark today; probably won't be far away.

Form & Verdict

Won over hurdles in Ireland in 2020 but lightly raced and disappointing for Jennie Candlish over the last two years; not beaten far in first-time cheekpieces at Uttoxeter (2m, good) this month but most of the flights were omitted and the form is not compelling.

Form & Verdict

Made the frame in two bumpers last September and also on first two hurdling starts (2m, soft/good); makes handicap debut after 255-day absence but has plenty of scope for progress if fully tuned up; moves up in trip with tongue-tie fitted.

Modest fourth in small field at Ludlow last month, taking record to 0-8; however, may fare better off this reduced mark back down in grade; not ruled out.

No wins in seven; placed in novice/maidens and has perhaps not done herself justice in two handicaps when beaten 26l (2m2f) and 19l (2m4f); no surprise if she fared better here.

Form & Verdict

Easily won four-runner Huntingdon maiden (2m3f, good) by 26l on rules debut in May but, with hot favourite Call The Fairies below form, it's hard to gauge what that form is worth; safely held twice since (2m7f/2m1f) and opening handicap mark probably demands improvement.

Form & Verdict

0-15 over hurdles and very expensive to follow; still going okay before falling at third-last flight at Worcester (2m7f, good; first-time blinkers) six weeks ago and there is little doubt she has the raw ability to overcome her current mark, but patience in her has worn thin.
