Unplaced in her first six starts but showed the benefit of wind surgery when swooping at Uttoxeter 19 days ago, winning over this trip quite decisively (attracted support); even a 6lb rise still leaves her at the foot of this handicap and no surprise if she followed up.

Became disappointing on the Flat last year; suggested he might be able to win over hurdles when dead-heat third on handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) in February but next run was a backward step; returns from five-month break; others have more persuasive profiles.

The combination of a first-time hood and more patient tactics were offered as an explanation for the improved form shown when a clearcut winner at Worcester (2m maiden) in September; has run to a similar level (on RPR's) over further since; probably a shade high in the handicap.

Pulled up in both Irish points and he's 0-5 over hurdles; promising second in a 2m4f maiden here (good) in June but he's not gone on from that and was disappointing at Uttoxeter last week; bit to prove but he raced freely last time and this drop back to 2m is worth exploring.

Progressive 7yo who has collected three wins this season (2m3f-2m7f, good-heavy) and posted another personal best when close second at Sandown (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago; nudged up another 2lb for that but good 5lb claimer Freddie Gingell is enlisted here; major player.

Looked a little flattered to get within 2l of Gyllen at Taunton the last time but that was another sound effort from this in-form 7yo and dropping back from 3m won't count against him; continues to edge up the weights, however.
