Form & Verdict

Didn't progress after winning C&D (good) maiden for Oliver Sherwood in November 2021 and was sold for £10,000 after a disappointing run last summer; however, Harry Derham has made an excellent start to his training career and it will be interesting to see what he can do with this recruit; tongue-tie fitted.

Bumper/maiden winner for Oliver Sherwood; never better than when comfortably winning a 1m7f handicap at Wincanton (good) on her debut for this yard and first run in a tongue-tie; up 5lb in a deeper race but by no means ruled out.

Promising at 2m for Oliver Sherwood last winter, winning a Wincanton mares maiden and useful third from out of the weights on handicap debut at Ludlow (good to soft); didn't go on over 2m4f last summer and sold £10,000 since but is 10lb lower than at Ludlow; first-time tongue-tie; interesting.

Useful novice last season, winning all three races pretty comfortably (2m-2m3f); didn't fire when reappearing in Taunton handicap (2m3f, soft) in January but was given a wind op soon afterwards and remains one to be interested in.

Has had three wind operations, the latest last May after a poor run at this meeting; won chase debut at Worcester in October and very good second in Grade 2 novice at Wincanton one month later, both at 2m4f, but a nine-day gap before latest start was seemingly insufficient as she ran poorly (2m1f); off 150 days since and needs improvement but could still have more to offer.

Won on chase debut at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) last month and ran really well when second against males in Grade 2 Rising Stars Novices' Chase at Wincanton (2m4f, good to soft) nine days ago; she should be fine at this shorter trip and she holds leading form claims.

Form & Verdict

Won a C&D (soft) novice last season and returns here after two good efforts in handicaps in February, the latter a third (just behind No No Tonic) at Chepstow (2m, good to soft); can make her presence felt.

Took her form to a whole new level during the winter, making all for clear C&D win on Boxing Day before two very creditable seconds at Chepstow (2m3f/2m); major player if judged on that evidence but needs to bounce back from a duff effort 19 days ago.

Form & Verdict

Has endured significantly more than her fair share of mishaps over hurdles but still has a pretty good 3-11 strike-rate in this sphere (all wins on good ground); will need to be at her best to overcome current mark, though, and her two AW runs in January do not inspire confidence.

Stopped quickly and was pulled up in her first two chases but, following a break, jumped well and won comfortably by over 8l at Plumpton (2m3f, good) on Sunday; today's race is more competitive but she escapes a penalty and needs to be taken very seriously.
