Consistent mare who made all to win Worcester novice (2m, good) by 9l last month, her ninth start over hurdles; not discredited when beaten odds-on favourite at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft) on Wednesday and will be fine over today's trip; likely contender.

Twice beaten by Ooh Betty last spring but has come on leaps and bounds since then, producing career-best RPRs in winning 2m mares' hurdles at Newbury late last year (latest a Listed race); has more on her plate here but she's a no-nonsense mare who will be up there throughout.

Splendidly tough mare who was notching her third win of a busy campaign when trouncing ten rivals in a novice over C&D (good to soft; made most of the running) three weeks ago; that was her best effort by some way and there seemed to be no fluke about it; probably again the one to beat.

Form & Verdict

Placed in four consecutive handicaps before winning a Market Rasen maiden (2m4f, good) in first-time blinkers 16 days ago; has a penalty to shoulder here but won't mind if the ground softens and is likely to be right in the thick of things.

Placed in two bumpers for Fergal O'Brien in the spring (good to soft/good); that form isn't anything to go wild about but she ought to play a significant role if she jumps adequately on today's stable/hurdle debut.

Now 4-4 in handicaps after dominating throughout at Doncaster (2m, heavy), proving 10l superior to Spit Spot; a further 8lb rise means she's gone up a total of 36lb but she's on a roll and a better mare now than when she last tried 2m4f.
