Form & Verdict

Extended her unbeaten record at this track to three when beating Eagle's Realm (contests the opening division) by 2l here 17 days ago (tongue-tie joined cheekpieces); 6lb higher but Charlie Maggs claims 10lb whereas Peter Kavanagh took off only 5lb last time; must have a chance.

Suited by the drop back to 2m when a 6l winner at Uttoxeter (good) in May, his sixth start over hurdles; coped well with a 9lb rise to push a last-time-out winner close at Newton Abbot; up another 4lb but he's running well.

Clear second when back over hurdles at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in May but a little beneath that form since and 2m4f shouldn't have been an issue last time; others are a bit more intriguing.

Dual hurdle winner who was respectable third on chasing debut for Adam West in October; subsequently changed hands for 2,000gns; needs to prove he can handle slow ground but it will be interesting to see what his up-and-coming new trainer can do with him.

Two poor efforts since returning from over a year off, latterly over hurdles for Sarah Bowen; it's hard to know how much ability he retains and he doesn't have a great record on this sort of ground.
