Two wins from five starts in British points, runner-up in the other three; well backed, made most when winning a ten-runner maiden hurdle at Lingfield (2m3f, soft) last month, drawing clear; this race demands good deal more but this extra distance looks sure to suit.

Dual winning pointer who showed useful form in three starts over hurdles last season, including when second of 13 on handicap debut at Chepstow (2m3f, soft) in March; not seen since pulling up at Auteuil (2m3f, heavy) in April, but is proven fresh and shouldn't be underestimated on chase debut.

Two wins and three seconds from her five runs in British points; two front-running wins in mares' maiden/novice hurdles at Lingfield and Warwick (2m3f/2m5f; both soft ground), showing plenty of grit on the latter occasion (form looks solid); she moves into handicaps with the potential to do even better.

Last of three finishers on seasonal/chase debut at Wincanton but was conceding a lot of weight to Heva Rose when chasing that easy winner home at Lingfield (2m4f, good to soft); won't mind this longer trip and, for one who can race lazily, first-time cheekpieces are interesting.
