Form & Verdict

Placed in all three starts over hurdles in France (1m7f-2m1f, Auteuil; very soft/heavy) and dam is an unraced half-sister to the classy staying hurdler/chaser The Giant Bolster; commences life with Paul Nicholls at a realistic level and, with rain forecast, should make her experience count.

Placed in all three starts over hurdles in France and is 2-2 for this yard after breezing home at Hereford and digging deep at Aintree (both on good to soft; tongue tied latterly); probably has to find something on the form of that latest Listed success against her own sex but that's perfectly feasible.

Kept on well to score on Tapeta at Newcastle (1m2f, Class 6) in August; took time to warm to her task when introduced to hurdles for the first time at Sedgefield (2m1f; good) before keeping on to finish a creditable third; solid stamina-wise with scope for further improvement.

Likeable and consistent filly; got to within 4l of Aintree Grade 1 runner-up Bo Zenith at Haydock in February and it was all very straightforward in a Musselburgh handicap a month ago (2m1f, good to soft); 7lb rise sees her with top weight but she's earned it.

Dual Tapeta winner (1m/1m2f), who won a maiden hurdle in January and has run well to finish placed in two valuable juvenile contests since (including a Listed event); untried at this trip on the Flat but she's on a workable mark back in this sphere and is not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Flat winner at Carlisle (1m1f maiden; good) in May, and gave a decent account of herself on Market Rasen hurdles debut (2m, good; weakened into third); she's entitled to improve for that experience, though probably won't want to see the ground deteriorate with rain in the forecast.

Form & Verdict

Didn't offer much in four attempts on the Flat (7f-1m4f), beating just one rival on handicap debut at Ffos Las (1m, Class 6) in September; no obvious reason as to why she should fare any better over hurdles; the least likely.

Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten fourth on Flat debut at Chepstow (1m novice; good) in August; the fact that her dam is closely related to a winning hurdler does offer some hope that the switch of codes may assist; still has plenty to prove, though, sporting newly applied headgear (a hood).
