2-7 in points and 1-5 over hurdles; stays well and acts on soft ground; good second in two of her four chases, including penultimate start, but she needs to bounce back from a rather disconcerting display eight weeks ago.

Stopped quickly and was pulled up in her first two chases but, following a break, jumped well and won comfortably by over 8l at Plumpton (2m3f, good) on Sunday; today's race is more competitive but she escapes a penalty and needs to be taken very seriously.

Twice a winner over hurdles at Fontwell (2m1f; soft/good), in handicap and novice company; has stopped quickly and pulled up in two chases, though lost a shoe on both occasions and reportedly made a noise last time; could go well back from a break should the wheels stay on.

She was beginning to look exposed but proved well suited by the big-field scenario when cruising to victory in a mares' handicap at Newbury (2m4f, good to soft) in March; has also won on good ground; she's up 8lb now back against males but is entitled to respect given her Newbury dominance.

Burdened with a double penalty when behind Smiling Getaway and Lilting Verse last time at Ludlow on soft ground that probably wasn't ideal; had previously finished a clear second behind the well-touted Shanagh Bob at Plumpton (2m4f, good to soft) and, armed with plenty of experience, she could go well at a price.

Looks exposed after ten hurdling starts but won twice at around 2m in early part of this season and gave very good account when clear second to recent Grade 2 winner Shanagh Bob at Plumpton (2m4f, good to soft) last month; likely to make her presence felt here.

Lightly raced hurdler and, following a wind operation, she was a 13l third over 3m at Exeter on chase debut; ended up tailed off back over the same C&D last week but was running well until a late mistake and then eased; not ruled out with assured stamina an asset here.

Pulled up over hurdles when 100-1 for stable debut in November but, following a wind op, fared considerably better when third over C&D (soft) on last month's chasing debut; 2lb lower today and a major player if the first-time cheekpieces have any positive effect.

Disappointing at Newton Abbot when last seen in October but the step up to 2m5f may have backfired and she enters the reckoning on her second in a novice there (2m2f, good to soft) last summer; this is only her third handicap and she's not ruled out on her return.

Won an Irish point in January and bought for £72,000 soon afterwards; had been headed when hampered and unseating before three out on hurdling debut at Ludlow (Saunton Surf runner-up) and then ran no race at Exeter (2m7f, good to soft) when tried in a tongue-tie; it could be that she's yet to do herself justice under rules.

Verdict

Lagonda and Somespring Special (second choice) set the standard but both are penalised and perhaps ALL THE GLORY can get off the mark over hurdles. She appeared to lack some focus when beaten narrowly last time and the cheekpieces can help her.[Alistair Jones]
