T: Kerry Lee

Made a winning handicap debut at Hereford (2m, soft; from a 6lb lower mark) in January; hasn't quite matched that form since, but with stamina in her family - sister to the 2m5f winner Barbados Blue and the 3m-3m1f winner Barbados Buck's - this extra yardage promises to be within range.

T: Kerry Lee

Runner-up in her first two hurdle starts (599 days apart); off the mark in a 2m mares' handicap at Hereford in January but her progress stalled at Leicester last month (ground reportedly unsuitable); too soon to write her off and she's bred to stay this longer trip.

Maiden; good second at Fakenham (2m4f) and Lingfield (2m) on last two appearances but they were in 2021; holds place claims if she happens to return in similar form; heed the market signals.

Below her best on last three appearances, though a reluctance to settle (often the case) was never going to help when upped to nearly 3m the last time; she did win at Fakenham in November (7lb lower) on her last race at about this trip and heavy ground is fine.

Not yet off the mark but was about to put that right at Catterick (3m1f, soft) in January, having the race in the bag only to unseat at the last; said to have made a respiratory noise when pulled up the following month; considered on the earlier run.
