Form & Verdict

Generally very disappointing since switched to chasing in the autumn but suggested she might be ready to exploit some significant help from the handicapper when second at Doncaster (2m4f, good) last month and must be considered here.

Beat male rivals at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) last time, opening her chase account at the seventh attempt; still well treated on hurdles form; big player provided she's as effective in first-time cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Has 0-11 strike-rate under all codes but finished second in both chases, latterly in race that developed into a slog at Fontwell (2m5f, heavy) last month; will be fine on today's quicker ground and has a fighting chance.

Form & Verdict

Opened chasing account with 8l success at Warwick (2m4f, heavy) last February and set to follow up before last-fence fall at Uttoxeter (2m4f, soft) three weeks later; still has low mileage but hasn't fired on any of three outings this season and was particularly disappointing in December.

Form & Verdict

Useful in his prime but has regressed and become very inconsistent; dug deep to make all off 3lb higher at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) in December but pulled up on next three runs and his remote second at Huntingdon (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago does not instill much confidence.

Ex-French 6yo who failed to threaten at Market Rasen (2m3f, soft) latest and is now 0-16; however, his mark continues to fall and he kept on for a good second there (2m1f, good to soft) in January; possibilities if cheekpieces have positive effect (they didn't on sole previous use in France in 2022).
