Form & Verdict

Ran flat on her return from a break at Worcester last month but she's an Irish point winner who opened her rules account over C&D in January (good to soft; handicap debut) and then ran well when hitting the frame at Uttoxeter; chance if back to anything like her best.

Form & Verdict

Has been in good form on the Flat this year and she won an Exeter handicap hurdle (2m, good to soft) by some 10l last November; that came at a cost with her now 8lb higher, but she can be forgiven her following failure (lost ground at the start).

J: Callum Shepherd

T: Stuart Kittow

7yo who was well held when falling at the last over hurdles last month but she scored in good style on the Flat (2m, Polytrack) on her penultimate run; 5lb higher here but conditions should be fine on this switch back to turf and she's in the mix.

7 yo Mare

OR: 109

Form & Verdict

Best figures were posted in bumpers but she ran away with a Stratford handicap (2m, good) by 7l and a late mistake was no help when an 11l third at Kempton; still on a reasonable mark and needs consideration.

Form & Verdict

Some good runs this year in Class 4 events but she does have to bounce back from a quiet run at Newton Abbot, though that was in June; not handicapped out of it if revived by a break.

Won her novice here in February and ran well enough when fourth in a Warwick 2m3f handicap (good) to believe she can win races off this mark; cheekpieces now fitted.

Only 3lb higher than for last year's win in this race and she's won a few times in Jersey since (as was also the case last year); bang there at Hereford a month ago and should be involved once more.

Prolific in Jersey on Flat and over hurdles, with her latest win (1m4f, firm) last month; has never won on the Flat in Britain but this season's three visits to Bath suggest she will probably not be far away.
