Form & Verdict

No great impact in two Exeter handicaps, over hurdles (2m5f) and fences (3m); possibly better for both those runs after significant breaks but regular hood left off and some guesswork involved.

J: Micheal Nolan

T: Philip Hobbs & Johnson White

Came clear to win a 3m1f soft-ground chase at Warwick in January (2lb lower; first-time cheekpieces) but it's all gone pear shaped in the meantime; perhaps another change of headgear will work the oracle but it's not hard to have doubts.

Failed to complete last two races and her tendency to clout the occasional fence remains a worry but she looked good when winning in first-time cheekpieces at Warwick (3m1f, soft) in January and is probably still on a workable mark.

Form & Verdict

Chase career abandoned after two attempts early in 2022 (one completion) but she beat in-form rivals quite convincingly back over fences at Fakenham recently (3m, good to soft) which followed a hurdle win there the time before (good); has form away from Fakenham and can progress further.

Form & Verdict

Not yet off the mark and last two runs haven't been the best but she wasn't far behind a subsequent winner on chase debut at Leicester in February (2m6f, good) and a return to that form would see her thereabouts.

Off the mark in style at Southwell in July; put up 9lb for that but showed she can cope with this mark with creditable third at the same track later that month; acts on good and softer and shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Three 2m7f chase wins at Newcastle, most recently off 2lb lower in November (soft); had mixed results before that and has gone off the boil again since, pulling up on heavy back at Newcastle 23 days ago; revival needed.

0-10 over hurdles; all three chase wins over 2m7f at Newcastle, most recently in November 2022; lightly raced since and out of form last term but a stirrup leather broke when she unseated at the first on latest outing, when 8-1 and first-time blinkers replaced cheekpieces.

3-17 over fences, the wins all at Newcastle and the latest in November 2022; not so good in her five starts since, the latest a heavy defeat after 262 days off but today is the first time in nearly two years that she's worn headgear and she did win (2021) when cheekpieces were first enlisted.
