Form & Verdict

Found some trouble in running when bidding for a hat-trick and bounced straight back to finish second in a 1m2f handicap at Newmarket; only 1lb higher and dropped back in grade, so has to be of interest; fine on good or good to soft.

T: Jamie Snowden

Won five times on the Flat from 1m-1m2f for Ian Williams last year; has taken time to click as a hurdler, but off the mark in a modest race at Haydock last time (1m7f, soft); not badly treated on handicap debut and could well play a part.

Useful Flat form before changing hands for 100,000gns; has shaped with a nice bit of promise in both his runs over hurdles, especially as soft ground would not have been absolutely ideal for him; strong contender even on soft and yet conditions could dry out.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 3yo who showed initial promise and got back on track with a fourth at Sandown (1m1f, good to firm), giving the impression that returning to further would suit; gets a chance to confirm that impression here.

Won twice over 8.6f at Wolverhampton in December and certainly stayed this new trip okay when going close at Chelmsford last time; has yet to prove herself as effective on grass but this is only her third turf start; respected.

Triple C&D winner who was a clear second back at this track (1m2f, good to soft; second-time visor) two weeks ago; that was behind a handicap blot who has won again since and this return to fast ground is no problem; dangerous with cheekpieces now tried.
