Form & Verdict

Should be right there on the form of an Ayr win last March (2m, soft) and a second there in December but a subsequent Kelso seventh was disappointing; probably not one to give up on in this company.

10lb higher than for last year's win in this race but went in again over C&D in December when much too good for a subsequent winner; latest Ayr third also respectable and returning here has to be a bonus.

Form & Verdict

Maiden after 11 starts but the return to further didn't work out at Bangor last month and better claims on earlier form at this shorter trip, including when second of four at Leicester in December (good to soft), the winner having won both 2m starts since; solid chance.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner who hasn't seemed much of a stayer over hurdles and is better off back at this trip, over which she won on handicap debut at Catterick in January (soft); wasn't obviously ahead of her mark there and is 3lb higher now but should be competitive at the right level.
