Form & Verdict

Began chasing career with two very respectable runs last month (2m3f/2m4f) but now switches back to hurdling; needs to prove she's fully effective on slow ground but is now 11lb lower than when placed at Leicester (1m7f, good to soft) in December; can't be ruled out.

Now 3lb lower than when winning at Carlisle (2m1f, heavy) in March but has been out of form this season (four runs) and is not yet proven over this far.

OR: 92

Form & Verdict

Made the frame in two Hexham novice hurdles last spring (2m4f/2m); safely held in both handicaps but ran well to a point here (2m3f, soft) a week ago, and that was her first start since October; not out of this if that recent outing did her good.

Sole win came in a 2m4f soft-ground handicap at Hexham a year ago; hasn't kicked on from another good effort at that venue in October and others arrive here in more compelling form.

Unexposed after only five hurdle runs but was well down the field when 50-1 for last month's seasonal/stable debut at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) and needs to have taken considerable benefit from that outing.

0-8; encouraging third in Carlisle handicap (2m1f, heavy; second run for new yard) most recently, shaping as if this step back up in trip will suit; this is a deeper field but she may improve again.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner this season and looked as good as ever when second to very progressive rival at Wincanton (1m7f, good) last month; unraced on heavy ground but has won on soft and is a strong stayer over this trip; good chance.

Four wins divided between this track (2m4f) and Taunton (2m); however she was running flat when falling two starts ago and was beaten a long way at Wincanton since; a revival can only be guessed at.

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.
