Her two previous full campaigns were solid before a poor run in April, which is a concern; her two handicap wins have been narrow ones but she was never better than when winning at Market Rasen (2m4f, soft; also fine on good) two months ago and holds each-way interest if she's again on song.

Temptingly treated on the pick of his handicap form at about 2m on ground not too slow; Taunton last time was disappointing (2m3f, good) but coming back to a sharp 2m will help and could run well if his jumping holds up (can make mistakes).

Chased home - albeit from afar - the well-handicapped Brentford Hope at Newbury in November (good to soft) and that wasn't his first competitive run in handicaps; has his quirks and can race freely, but soft/heavy ground wouldn't have suited the last twice and he returns to the scene of his wide-margin bumper win.
