Form & Verdict

Free-going mare who was only just reeled in at Market Rasen in July having established a good lead and lost both her front shoes when beaten further back there last time; 0-15 (0-4 hurdling) but has it in her to go well off a feather weight.

Three hurdle wins for Fergal O'Brien in October 2022 and best effort for this yard when beaten half a length over C&D in December, but she did too much early on back here the following month when 40l behind Baileys Warrior; possibilities if she can be ridden with a bit more restraint.

Partnered by Lily Jones on five of his six starts (once over hurdles) since switching to current stable and has been placed twice this year, more recently when third to Harbour Vision at Wolverhampton (9.4f) a fortnight ago; may not be ideally suited by this drop back in trip, though.

Looks mildly progressive after winning with a good bit up his sleeve at Stratford (2m, good) and the runner-up is a previous winner; probably has to raise his game again to defy the penalty.

Has appeared to idle when in front this season, which didn't stop him winning comfortably at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) in November but was costly there (2m3f, soft) last month; also effective elsewhere; up 6lb for last time but this progressive 7yo could have lots more left in the tank, and he's a smooth-travelling sort who may be suited by the drop back in trip.

Disappointing at Aintree (2m4f, heavy) in December last time out but prior to that he impressed when winning over this C&D (heavy), and if rediscovering that form today's 6lb higher mark may not stop him.
