Form & Verdict

Different proposition handicapping for new yard off 389-day break, showing close second at 150-1 to be no fluke when narrowly getting the job done next time (both 6f on AW); 7f well within range and she is hard to rule out if taking to turf; up 2lb.

Big improver once handicapping for this yard from April onwards, winning over 6f at Wolverhampton, 7f at Chepstow and 7.5f at Ffos Las; not at her best in her bid for a four-timer in July but she's still capable of better and a tongue-tie is now added.

Lightly raced mare who has taken off since returning for this yard in handicaps and teaming up with Rhiain Ingram, winning her last three including over C&D (good to soft) in May; only just held on when making all at Ffos Las (7.4f, good) last month but may have won by a bit further had she not hung; 3lb higher but very much on a roll.

Brighton regular - successful over 1m there last May; struggled for form on turf through August, September, and October, so returns from a 155-day absence with plenty to prove, not least his AW prowess (0-12).

His two course runs feature in his top five RPRs but record of 0-18 and his last-time-out sixth to Fact Or Fable are enough to give him a swerve.
