Form & Verdict

Won two novice hurdles last season (2m/2m4f) and returned from layoff to make winning handicap debut at Exeter (2m2f, heavy) in January, albeit in race that was reduced to two runners after third flight; didn't fire at Carlisle in February but may still have potential.

Front-runner; hurdle winner on good to soft but suited by slower surfaces and this winter's improvement over fences has come on soft and heavy; has moved steadily in the right direction at 2m4f-2m6f but this is a tough task.

Form & Verdict

Placed twice over 2m in novice company at Exeter (heavy/good to soft) at start of this year but struggled when upped to 3m2f for last month's handicap debut and was safely held when dropped back to 2m3f nine days ago; not written off just yet but comes here with a point to prove; 1lb wrong.

Switched to fences the last twice, winning at Ffos Las (2m3f, heavy) then pulled up at Exeter; consistent sort over hurdles but has stamina to prove at this distance and remains on career-high mark to boot.

Idled then jumped very awkwardly at the final fence but did enough to justify favouritism at Ffos Las (2m3f, heavy; chase debut) five weeks ago when 6lb lower; has hurdles form at this venue; consistent mare who holds solid claims.

Opened hurdles account at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) at end of last season and has performed well on all three appearances this term, most recently when second at Exeter (2m5f, heavy) last month; nudged up to another career-high mark for this chasing debut but still commands respect.

Form & Verdict

Triple novice hurdle winner in early 2022; initially disappointing in handicap hurdles but was back in very good form when comfortably beating a next-time-out winner by over 8l at Huntingdon (2m4f, soft) last month and could still be well treated after a 7lb rise.

Has a record of 5-10 over hurdles, the most recent win by 10l in a five-runner race at Ffos Las (2m6f, soft) in May on latest outing; 7lb higher today but has to be taken seriously for yard among the winners.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up on Irish point debut last year (yielding ground) and made the frame in two 2m4f novice hurdles in February (both on good); no match for wide-margin winner when second at Sedgefield (2m4f) last time but is open to improvement on today's handicap debut if she handles the slower ground.

Four-time hurdle winner who seems versatile regarding ground; didn't find a great deal for pressure when fourth on her two starts this year and needs subsequent wind op (her second) to have made a difference.
