Form & Verdict

Soundly beaten back over hurdles at Exeter last month but chasing may be her game nowadays and she finished runner-up over fences at Exeter (3m, good to soft/heavy) on her two other runs this season; seems versatile ground-wise and could be a contender in first-time cheekpieces.

Bounced back from a disappointing seasonal debut (over hurdles) to win narrowly at Taunton (2m7f, good) last month; will be fine on today's slower ground but has become a hard mare to predict and is on a career-high mark.

Seemingly boosted by first-time cheekpieces when winning small-field mares' chase here (2m5f, good) in March but was pulled up on both subsequent outings (chase/hurdle) and has become a hard one to predict.

Ran poorly on last season's sole run over hurdles, while taking well to fences until a respiratory noise was reported on final outing; cheekpieces last two; needs to be back at her best on this first run since wind surgery.

Disappointing at Fontwell last month but she won twice last year, over C&D (good to soft) in January and at Hereford (2m5f, good to firm) in October, and she can be in the mix if back on song.

Not firing on all cylinders this season but has become well handicapped, and seemed to be travelling pretty well in second place before slipping and unseating rider on home turn at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) recently.

Seems versatile regarding trip/ground and has become well handicapped but was unable to lay a glove on Juniper when second at Taunton (2m5f, soft) last month and needs to up her game here.

Form & Verdict

Bumper and two-time hurdle winner who was a fair second of three on her chase debut at Fontwell in November; below par on both runs since (pulled up last time) but perhaps wind surgery will have done the trick.

Below par when eighth at Kempton only 12 days ago and needs to leave that run behind; however, prior to that she'd been running consistently well in some good handicaps in the winter (2m4f-2m7f, soft/good to soft) and she's a player if swiftly rediscovering that sort of form.

Back from chasing when winning at Wincanton (2m5f) and third at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) and she topped that form when staying-on fourth of 19 in the Lanzarote at Kempton (2m5f, good to soft) three weeks ago; a 3m2f run last March seemed creditable at the time and the Lanzarote suggested that another crack at this sort of trip may well help.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing in the main last year over hurdles but this point winner scored on her chase debut at Huntingdon (2m7f, good) three weeks ago and could have more to offer over fences; strong claims.

Dual chase winner on good ground last year (2m7f/3m1f); didn't run badly when fourth of five at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft; had wind op since) in January and has some form on slow ground but others appeal more all the same.
