Form & Verdict

Very useful hurdler at her best but was out of form in 2021-22 season, and her only run since spring 2022 was a poor performance on the AW in January; reverts to hurdling on a tempting mark and with cheekpieces refitted but she's a very difficult mare to weigh up at present.

Pearl Of The West

11st 5lb

J: Mike O’Connor

T: John C McConnell

The last of her five hurdle wins came in 2019 but has been regressive in the last 18 months; however, has run solid races on both chase starts lately over 2m4f and a repeat of those efforts will put her firmly in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Placed on four of her five starts for Donald McCain, the last twice in valuable events at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) and Haydock (3m, good; first-time blinkers); not certain to benefit from today's drop back in trip but is sure to appreciate the significant ease in grade.

Ex-Irish mare who finished second on three of her four starts for Donald McCain last season (all in cheekpieces), most recently when going close in series final at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) last month; still unexposed over 3m; a possible if today's headgear switch has any beneficial effect.

Form & Verdict

Not seen over hurdles since coming second in valuable series final at Haydock (2m3f, good) in April 2022 but won over fences in March and was also successful on the Flat a fortnight ago; evidently in good nick; respected.

Form & Verdict

Won Bellewstown claiming hurdle (2m4f, good) for Gordon Elliott last summer but her two runs for John Hanlon in September (hurdle/chase) were very disappointing and today's stable debut comes after an eight-month break; others have considerably less to prove.
