Form & Verdict

Two good placed efforts in 2m7f handicaps (soft/good to soft) since November but she has a patchy record and has struggled in her last two runs; overall record now stands at 2-31 and others are more convincing.

Likeable mare who is a previous C&D winner and returns to this track on the back of solid efforts; couldn't rule out, though has little margin for error off current mark.

Veteran mare who ended last season with a win at Chepstow (near 3m, soft) and finished well for narrow win here (2m5f, good to soft) when back in action in November; creditable fourth, just behind Longshanks, here one month ago and this step back up in trip will help; considered each-way.

Form & Verdict

Got off the mark with front-running win in 2m3f handicap here (good to soft) in November but she's not gone on from that and has finished third of four in staying handicaps in last two runs; record now stands at 1-9 and she needs to find more progress.

Form & Verdict

Won a Hereford bumper (good) last January but she's not matched that form in her three completed starts over hurdles; still unexposed and wasn't beaten far on her handicap debut at Ffos Las (2m6f, heavy) in January but she needs to raise her game after another break.

Made low-key handicap debut when sixth of seven at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) in January but that was her first run since November 2021 and there is good evidence to suggest today's step up to 3m will suit; can get much closer to the target today.

Won off 8lb higher in mares' event at Ascot (2m7f, good) in November 2021 but she's been disappointing in the last 12 months and has been laboured in 3m handicaps in her last two starts; plenty to prove and she needs a major revival.

Has been taken out of races on good and soft ground but seemed fine on the latter surface when second of nine finishers over C&D in March; failed to give her running when upped to 2m7f at Chepstow next time (favourite) but still in the mix on return from break.
