Form & Verdict

Listed bumper winner; hasn't quite transferred that promise to hurdles (three starts; 2m/2m2f, soft/good to soft) but has run pretty well and the first-time cheekpieces could help with her jumping on handicap debut.

J: Paddy Brennan

T: Fergal O’Brien

Listed bumper winner in 2021 and won two of four hurdle races last season, including on her only start in cheekpieces, which return today; reappeared with another 2m handicap win (Hereford) and, bred to be suited by at least 2m4f, she was a hot favourite when upped to that trip at Cheltenham in December, only to unseat two out when challenging; can make amends, with plenty more to offer over this sort of trip.

Form & Verdict

Well-bred course bumper winner (2m, good) who made all at Musselburgh (1m7f, soft) last month on third hurdle start; well beaten at Doncaster since but it was a 3m Listed race; has far more realistic claims now handicapping and could have a say now back down in trip in first-time cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Two-time hurdle winner (2m/1m7f, good/soft) who flopped when favourite on last month's handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m4f, good), when there was more amiss than a possible lack of stamina; something to prove after that but she's in top hands (one of two for yard) and may be able to bounce back.

J: Miss Heidi Palin

T: Dan Skelton

Third attempt over fences was disappointing, so she reverted to hurdles at Hereford (2m) last month and it did the trick as she rallied to get up on the run-in under 7lb claimer Heidi Palin; just 1lb higher and has some form over 2m4f, but this is a competitive race.

Form & Verdict

Point/bumper and two-time novice hurdle (2m/1m7f, good/soft) winner who was a solid second off this mark on handicap debut at Newcastle (2m1f, soft) in January; there's every chance she'll be bang there.

Her second 2m4f handicap success when winning here in November (soft) and then second at Market Rasen (2m) to last week's Haydock runner-up Holly; wasn't at the peak of her powers at Catterick last time but had a break since then and seems to go well fresh.
