Won at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) in May and Exeter (2m3f, good to soft) in October on her first two attempts over rules fences; needs to bounce back from a poor show at Kempton, where she jumped to her left; won a 2021 hurdle race on soft.

Made low-key return from 225-day absence when pulled up on heavy ground last month and is now 0-6 for Ryan Chapman but today's quicker conditions ought to be much more suitable, and he lurks on a tempting mark.

J: Beau Morgan

T: Ryan Chapman

Hurdle winner who is 0-5 over fences but he was runner-up behind a major improver over C&D (good to soft) in April and the drop back t 2m1f looked against him in his final run in the spring; still has potential in this sphere and he's not ruled out on his return.

J: Ben Godfrey

Frustrating performer; 0-15 over fences (placed in nine of them) and pulled up when tried in cheekpieces on latest; first hurdle start since March 2021 and hard to be confident this will be his golden hour.

Eros

J: Ben Godfrey

T: Kayley Woollacott

Longstanding maiden who was disappointing at Exeter last month and it's hard to be confident after that; however, he went there on the back of two good seconds (2m4f/2m, good/soft) and it's possible he'll be able to bounce back in first-time cheekpieces and a reapplied tongue-tie; not written off.

Has a poor strike-rate and she's been soundly beaten on both runs this winter but her fourth placing at Taunton (2m2f, good) three weeks ago was a step back in the right direction and she's 5lb lower than when twice finishing placed last spring (including on heavy); not discounted.

Verdict

Things have been looking up for Robins Field and he can go well again but perhaps fresh blood is called for and PETTICOAT LUCY is taken to make a winning start over fences now she has dropped to a very realistic mark. Poet’s Reflection is third on the list.[Emily Weber]
