Form & Verdict

Won this last year and this front-runner posted Listed win number six when comfortably beating Maid O'Malley and Annie Mc at Carlisle last month; all of her wins have come on soft ground or slower but she's also shown promise on good/good to soft; leading claims.

Multiple Listed winner, including the last two runnings of this race (soft/good) and at Aintree three weeks ago (2m4f, heavy; easily); it's a stronger race than in 2021 and 2022 but she should still be a tough nut to crack.

Won this in 2020 (heavy) and beat Zambella to win at Warwick (2m4f, soft) in February 2021; just two runs since and well beaten by Zambella at Carlisle last month but may have needed that first run for 358 days and could pose a bigger threat today; showed promise on good/good to soft early in career.

Won two Listed mares' chases in winter 2020-21 (2m4f, heavy/soft), including a defeat of Zambella, and following some time off she was second to Zambella in this race last year when it was held at Aintree (2m4f, soft; beaten about 5l); another layoff since but she's a player if retaining her ability.

Strike-rate of 5-8 over fences and never better than when making a successful return to mares' 2m4f events at Doncaster (heavy) and Warwick (soft) last season; had just over 5l in hand of Zambella last time and should confirm those placings on the same terms; Elimay is another matter, however.

Listed winner at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft) in January and fine second in the Grade 2 mares' chase at the Cheltenham Festival (2m4f, good to soft) in March; well beaten on this month's return at Huntingdon but may have needed the run and she's capable of a bold show; may not want soft ground.

Multiple wins in Listed mares' chases, the latest at Newbury (2m7f, soft) in December; she's well treated on that form now back in a handicap but has been a long way below her best the last twice; needs to bounce back.

C&D winner who has been placed in the last two runnings of this, on good to soft and soft; however, she has ground to make up on Allegorie De Vassy on the latter running and was seemingly disheartened by a fall in January when pulled up at Exeter since.

Form & Verdict

Judged on the vast majority of her form she's up against it in this field and was beaten 14l by Zambella on her reappearance at Carlisle last month; however, she may improve for that run and, having been progressive in handicaps last season, she was bang there at 100-1 when falling two out in the Grade 2 mares' chase at the Cheltenham Festival; not ruled out.

Solid record over fences for all that she's won only two of her 16 starts; another good effort in a 2m4f handicap at Carlisle 18 days ago but she faces a tough test at these weights.

Dual winner last season, the second over 2m5f here on soft ground off a 7lb lower mark; mainly creditable efforts this season, including when fourth over C&D last time (heavy; first-time tongue tie) when running as though needing the race; chance.

Form & Verdict

Highly progressive last year with four handicap wins (2m3f/2m4f, good/good to soft); a case can be made on that form but she hasn't been at her best on either run this autumn, following an absence.
