Form & Verdict

Beaten a minimum of 30l in three novice hurdles last winter; plenty to prove on handicap debut, after a break, on that basis but was placed in two bumpers a year ago (on good ground); Finn Lambert's 8lb claim a major plus and not at all dismissed; up in trip.

Needs to bounce back from last month's below-par Fontwell run but was creditable second at Bangor (2m7f, good) two starts ago, after a break, and has claims if judged on that performance.

Doncaster winner in January and quite consistent since; good second (clear of the the rest) at Worcester eight days ago and should be firmly involved once again, with Theo Gillard's 3lb claim a plus.

Landed a major gamble at Worcester (2m4f) eight days ago, on her handicap debut after 18 months off; well out of the weights, even under a penalty, but still only 5lb higher than for the win; the one to beat, assuming this doesn't come too soon.
