Form & Verdict

Won her first two, overcoming a poor round of jumping in France (very soft) and looking far more professional when winning easily at Newbury (2m, good); back to earth with a bang when in the rear throughout here last month in a 2m1f Grade 2; brings potential into handicaps but she could be on a tough mark.

Flat winner; no match for Arclight off level weights on hurdling debut but ran two more good races afterwards and was one of the favourites when disappointing at Musselburgh in a 2m1f handicap (good to soft) won by Cianciana; getting back on good ground is a bonus and she might be better treated than some.

Her one win over hurdles, from 11 attempts, was in handicap at Sandown (2m4f, heavy) in December; five seconds in this sphere, including at this meeting last year and when showing her best form on last two outings (3m/2m3f); raised 4lb but considered each-way.

Unraced over this far but strong in the finish when winning over 2m4f on heavy at Sandown in December, after which she ran fourth in a good novice handicap at Lingfield (2m3f; form franked since); couldn't land a blow at Carlisle but that was back over 2m1f; one to be very interested in.

Flat winner in France (soft) and comfortably off the mark in her third maiden hurdle when beating five rivals at Limerick (soft); her second on penultimate start was on good to yielding; this mark looks challenging on bare achievements but she has a Grade 1 entry at Punchestown.

Tongue tied on last three starts, first of all putting up a stout show over 2m4f (soft) when second at Aintree on Boxing Day; not quite at that level on either start since, with cheekpieces added on latest and she needs much better than that performance.

Won 2m3f maiden last April and put up a stout show over 2m4f (soft) at Aintree on Boxing Day against one ahead of her mark; unsuited by the return to 2m1f at Newcastle since, but the addition of cheekpieces today is a query; should have solid claims for last year's winning yard.

Useful on Flat; untroubled to win her first two over hurdles (soft/good) before finishing runner-up in a Listed race; below form at Ascot (handicap on good to soft) on her return from a break and Nico De Boinville rejects her for Under Control.

Readily justified favouritism upped to 2m4f at Wincanton (soft) two months ago, registering another Listed win and taking chase record to 3-3; goes into deeper waters in this grade back against male rivals but may well be up to the task, being an improving mare who is 2-2 at Kempton and receives weight all round.

Flat bred but she won twice over hurdles and is 2-2 in this discipline having jumped well en route to clearcut wins at Kempton (2m2f, good) and Exeter (2m1f, good to soft); the highest rated of these on BHA figures and gets a 4yo allowance.

Eight-race maiden (both codes) but still early days over hurdles and she was in there digging when hampered and falling two out at Doncaster in a Listed race in which Arclight and Cianciana made the frame; that was in January and she's since left Jessica Harrington; new trainer applies a hood (replacing cheekpieces).
