Form & Verdict

Bumper winner, has form figures of 112 over hurdles, making all at Worcester (2m, good; won by 7l) and Hexham (2m, soft; won by 22l) then clear second, having switched to hold-up tactics, behind Ballymore favourite Hermes Allen in the Challow at Newbury (2m4f, soft; had subsequent winners behind); top rated in this field; improving mare who commands major respect.

Made all in the Grade 2 mares' novice at the Cheltenham Festival (2m1f, soft) last March and reappeared with Listed mares' win at Wetherby (2m, soft) in November; second in slowly run mares' Grade 2 when upped to 3m at Doncaster (good) three weeks ago and has leading claims under 4lb penalty.

Form & Verdict

3m point winner; very solid record in 2m novice hurdles, including two second-place finishes at Listed level (behind highly talented Luccia on first occasion); justified favouritism at Ffos Las (soft) last time, taking overall form figures to 112221; front-running mare who should go well on this first 2m4f assignment.

Form & Verdict

Irish mare who was purchased for £385,000 after point win (3m, good); followed up in Galway maiden hurdle (2m, soft) then ran well behind some useful male rivals in Grade 2 at Naas (2m4f, soft; form has substance); had wind surgery since and now goes in tongue-tie; should improve further; big player back against her own sex.

Made heavy weather of winning a Limerick hurdle last month (2m, soft/heavy) but had previously performed well in a couple of 2m4f Grade 2s won by Inthepocket and You Wear It Well, both of whom ran so well here at the Festival; has form on all ground and must have every chance.

Form & Verdict

Stablemate of She's A Saint; hacked up in maiden hurdle at Hereford (2m3f) on rules debut; has shown headstrong tendencies at Newbury (did too much up front in the Challow) and Ffos Las (2m; turned over at short price) since; tongue-tie now fitted; chance of confirming earlier promise depends on whether she settles better.

Dual hurdle winner who compiled a consistent profile in handicaps and it was a fair race for the grade last time at Taunton (2m, soft); did get outpaced there and she may need further than this, but she's still of interest on this switch to fences.

Form & Verdict

Nicely bred mare from the Henderson yard; placed in three bumpers; 2-2 over hurdles, winning at Doncaster (2m3f, good) by 2l and Ludlow (2m5f, good to soft) by about 5l; has hung left on occasions, including last time, and goes into this tougher race with something to find on the figures; however, looks open to further progress.

Won back-to-back mares novices hurdles at up to 2m5f last season; below that level since but there was encouragement in her chase debut effort until falling two out at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) last month; still a bit to prove dropped back in trip.
