Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 5yo who hasn't been out since finishing fourth in a novice handicap hurdle at Sandown in December (2m, good to soft); showed fair form at up to 1m4f on the Flat in France, including on soft ground, but overall has a bit to prove.

J: Harry Skelton

T: Dan Skelton

Has done her winning on the Flat (2m soft-ground handicaps) but there have been promising signs over hurdles; too keen when well beaten in her latest handicap at Lingfield eight months ago; only had four starts in this discipline and open to improvement now with Dan Skelton.

Won two handicaps at Catterick (2m, soft) in late summer and ran creditably in defeat last time; they were on the Flat but she's also of interest based on her three minor honours from three attempts over hurdles, most recently in a 2m handicap at Sandown last December; needs a look.

Form & Verdict

Has won over 1m4f (here) and 1m5f on good/good to firm this year and remains feasibly treated; good third over 1m4f here 13 days ago (good to firm) and has a chance now up in trip in a modest event; however, best form has been good or quicker going.

Yet to win over this far but she stays the trip and is fully effective on Tapeta; yet to get going after a summer break but this return to Class 6 company on AW should be in her favour; not discounted.

Unable to get threaten on two recent turf starts, following a break, but her best performances have come on AW and she's on a competitive mark on form as recent as April; effective over C&D and she's a possible player.

Form & Verdict

Useful hurdler at best but has disappointed in four starts since returning from a 537-day break; having first Flat run since January 2019, when second on Dundalk AW (2m) having won over 1m4f there on his previous start; cheekpieces now tried (poor effort once in blinkers); plenty to prove.
