Has made great strides since no match for Walk Of No Shame on hurdle debut at Lingfield in February, making all at Chepstow and Newton Abbot (about 2m1f; soft and good to soft); outpointed by well-treated rival on recent handicap debut at Leicester (1m7f, heavy) but still has potential.

Soundly beaten at Worcester in June and same story at Taunton last month when back from a break; however, this 5yo remains lightly raced and looked one to follow when winning on her handicap debut at Fontwell (2m5f, good) in May; there's some stamina in her pedigree and she could bounce back.

Displayed minor promise in one of her three hurdling starts in 2021 but was pulled up in the other two, and today's handicap debut comes after a 589-day absence; remains unexposed but stable has much more obvious chance with Ma Belle Noire.

Remote third in a point bumper and has subsequently achieved little in four maiden hurdles (2m-2m4f) this year; still early days and steps up to 3m but she needs a transformation on handicap debut; hood added.

Verdict

Oakley Dancer (second choice) and Pure Theatre are closely matched and both should go well, and in making cases for those two brings Chantilly Haze into the equation. Pepsiwithacap is another to consider but it could pay to risk BURROWS TREAT, who may have a personal best in her now turning to handicaps on this belated return to action.[Alistair Jones]
