Form & Verdict

Seven-race maiden but she finished well for a close second in 2m Uttoxeter handicaps (good to soft/good) in her final two runs in the autumn; returns from 164 days off but yard is in good form and she's a big player if she can pick up where she left off.

Won a mares' handicap at Fakenham (2m, soft) in April by just over 7l off 7lb lower; bit disappointing since until second of 14 at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft) last month after a summer break, so she's back in calculations.

Off the mark at the seventh attempt when winning at Lingfield handicap (2m, good to soft) in February and she ran into a handicap blot when runner-up at Southwell (2m, good) next time; was clear second best in that race and she still has scope for further progress; shortlisted.

Two 2m wins in 2023, last February (good to soft) and May (good), and ran well in defeat over C&D in between; she doesn't really fall into the progressive category but was caught on the hop by an improver (now rated 16lb higher) at Plumpton in January and shouldn't be far away back here.

Won a Huntingdon mares' novice in November (2m, good); struggled at 2m4f in next two runs but she got back on track with a fair second of four in Market Rasen handicap (2m2f, soft) last month; still has potential after only five hurdle runs and she's respected back on forecast quicker ground.

With new yard last four starts and back to form on last three, including a win; they were all 2m hurdle races but she also won over 2m on Newcastle AW Flat in June (did it well in a four-runner race); wore cheekpieces that day and on her only Flat run since, but they are off today; considered.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 6yo but she's been well held in all of her completed starts, including when a remote third in Southwell novice (2m, good; 150-1) last month; this is more realistic on handicap debut but she still needs something of a transformation.

Form & Verdict

Ex-French 5yo who made it eighth-time lucky over hurdles when scoring at Ludlow (2m, good to soft) in November; claimed out of Alastair Ralph's yard for £5,000 after that; this is tougher back in a handicap but she won in good style last time and could be dangerous on return for new yard.
