Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 4yo whose sole success for Chris Wall came here (1m6f) last September; disappointing when sent off favourite for her stable debut over the same trip back here four weeks ago, but always the possibility that she needed it after 168 days off; no great surprise if she fares better this time.

Dual AW Flat winner at round 1m6f; has improved since going handicapping over hurdles, best run when 10l-second to an improver in mares' race at Doncaster in March (2m, heavy; winner now rated 14lb higher); may improve again on this better ground.

Stayed well on the Flat; no match for the winner on her handicap debut at Doncaster (2m, heavy) but ran a respectable race and it's still early days over hurdles.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdles winner and two wins on the AW at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack), including on her return from six months off in March; seemed to be undone by a lack of pace when fourth of seven at Wolverhampton (1m4f, Tapeta) this month, but was still beaten less than a length; return to a longer trip may suit and a big run expected.

Had a break since disappointing at Chelmsford in November; had won two of her previous three runs (1m5f/1m6f) and probably still on a competitive mark.

Form & Verdict

Sole success in 13 starts came at Southwell (1m4f, Tapeta; first-time blinkers) in January and didn't seem to lack for stamina when third of eight there (1m6f) next time; not quite so good in her last two starts, but may fare better back up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Has been useful in his time (including Listed-placed) if not always the easiest, but well below form lately and losing run now up to 20; drops into a 0-70 for the first time, but still makes limited appeal.

Form & Verdict

All three Flat wins have come over 1m4f including in refitted cheekpieces at Wolverhampton (Tapeta) this month, but the trip was no problem when beaten less than a length into third of 11 over 16.5f there the time before; respected from 3lb higher.

First or second on all seven starts for this yard (good/soft), with a win at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft) two starts ago and a good second at Musselburgh last month; has had wind op since; keeps going up the weights but this admirably consistent 8yo continues to be competitive; respected.

Form & Verdict

Now at the veteran stage, but has nothing to prove under the conditions having gained his second course success over this trip off the same mark last month; latest third of eight at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack) was another fair effort and he should go well again.
