Won at Wetherby (2m, good) on her debut last February; expensive to follow in next seven starts but she got back on the scoresheet when landing a Stratford handicap (good to soft; second-time cheekpieces) last month; that was a narrow success but she held off an in-form rival and is only 2lb higher here; big player again for yard that won this last year.

Suited by slow ground; generally in decent form this term, most recently fourth at Uttoxeter (2m); however, she's well exposed and only 1-21 over hurdles; forecast conditions not ideal.

Twice beaten by Ooh Betty last spring but has come on leaps and bounds since then, producing career-best RPRs in winning 2m mares' hurdles at Newbury late last year (latest a Listed race); has more on her plate here but she's a no-nonsense mare who will be up there throughout.

Splendidly tough mare who was notching her third win of a busy campaign when trouncing ten rivals in a novice over C&D (good to soft; made most of the running) three weeks ago; that was her best effort by some way and there seemed to be no fluke about it; probably again the one to beat.

Only win was a shock one when 40-1 for a mares' novice hurdle at Wincanton last March (1m7f); only effort of note this season was her 15l third at Fontwell; pointing background suggests this switch to fences over further might benefit but he wouldn't be the obvious answer.
