5 yo Filly

OR: 102

Form & Verdict
Off the mark over hurdles at the fourth attempt in maiden at Stratford (2m, good) two weeks ago, leading late on; will need further improvement to make a winning handicap debut but she's low mileage and represents an in-form yard; respected.

Form & Verdict
Won four times under both codes last summer including an easy win off 6lb lower in this race; 0-8 since last success and was well below form at Stratford 15 days ago but he was runner-up there on his penultimate run; now drops back in grade and he's hard to rule out back at this track.

Form & Verdict
Better chaser than hurdler, as strike-rates and ratings confirm; unseated mid-race over fences on his penultimate run and he couldn't make a serious impact back over hurdles at Ffos Las (2m, good) last time; that took his record to 1-12 in this sphere and others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict
Turned things around when scoring off a reduced mark over C&D (good) last month and he backed that up with a respectable third behind an improver who made all here last time; now drops back into a Class 4 event and has claims if he gets a decent tow into this race.

Form & Verdict
Ended a lengthy losing run with his clearcut win at Warwick (2m, good) in May but was a well-held third of six at Huntingdon next time before a disappointing run back on the Flat at Epsom last month; bit to prove again and others are preferred.
