Her second 2m4f handicap success when winning here in November (soft) and then second at Market Rasen (2m) to last week's Haydock runner-up Holly; wasn't at the peak of her powers at Catterick last time but had a break since then and seems to go well fresh.

Made it 2-2 in 2m4f handicaps when winning at Musselburgh (soft) in November; bumped into rejuvenated winner when second at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) a fortnight ago and she's a solid contender now back up in trip; won on sole previous visit to Catterick.

T: S R B Crawford

Won handicaps here (2m2f), heavy) and Newcastle (2m1f, soft) last winter but he's run hot and cold since his last success and was disappointing when favourite at Naas last time; has a bit to prove after another break including stamina at this new trip; tongue-tie added.

7 yo Mare

Form & Verdict

Her first real blip under rules was her final run when performing below expectations in a Grade 2 handicap hurdle for mares at Newbury 13 months ago; has won after a break previously but she'll probably need her best form yet to defy top weight.

Form & Verdict

Winning pointer and perhaps not herself when twice disappointing over 2m4f; her trainer is happy to go again over this far and her latest third off 1lb higher at Kelso was a decent effort; considered.

J: Miss Heidi Palin

T: Dan Skelton

Third attempt over fences was disappointing, so she reverted to hurdles at Hereford (2m) last month and it did the trick as she rallied to get up on the run-in under 7lb claimer Heidi Palin; just 1lb higher and has some form over 2m4f, but this is a competitive race.

Sent over 3m for her last three runs but 2m4f on goodish ground could be ideal, conditions she faced when too good for Headscarf Lil at Newcastle in November; back to the same mark as that day as well.

The form of her maiden win at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) in October reads well but she'll need to jump better than when second of three runners back there later that month; makes handicap debut today.

4-23 over hurdles, with all her wins on good ground over shorter; the latest (last May) was her only win since 2021 but she was short-headed at Perth (3m on soft) last September and not disgraced two months ago when back from a 12-week break; capable of being thereabouts.
