Form & Verdict

Jumping has looked an issue in her previous three chases, unseating in two of them; ran a very laboured race back over hurdles here last time and everything depends on what effect the new blinkers might have.

Hit the ground running when first tried in blinkers, winning twice (2m7f, good; 3m2f, good to soft); patchy since but two runs back she was runner-up on soft at Wincanton (3m1f) and that brings her into it.

Won twice when fitted with blinkers in September (2m7f/3m2f) and looked as good as ever when second at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) last month; not one to rely upon heavily but will be fine on today's ground and features prominently in calculations.

Has her quirks but she's finished bang there in all four handicaps over hurdles at 3m+; only 2lb higher than for latest near miss at Newton Abbot and just a question of what she'll make of fences and cheekpieces.

After nearly landing a gamble at Newton Abbot in July he belatedly got off the mark over 2m6f at Stratford (good to soft); again ran well here (2m4f) 12 days ago and has solid claims despite his mark being on the increase.

Improved his chase record to 2-9 when scoring at Bangor (3m, soft) last month but he couldn't make a serious impact off this revised mark at Stratford (2m6f, soft) last time; now goes back up in trip but he looks weighted near his best and others look stronger.

Thorough stayer; very patchy since his last win in late 2020 but he was runner-up on his penultimate start and this veteran is well handicapped if new trainer can get him back on track.

Has won just one of her 17 rules starts and she was well beaten over fences here last time; however, she was in fair form in that discipline previously and her sole win came over hurdles; could be thereabouts if bouncing back in reapplied cheekpieces (albeit no positive effect in the past).

Not the easiest to predict and both wins have come at further; going well in the lead over 2m7f here two weeks ago but a slow jump four out saw him quickly beaten; perhaps the drop to this trip will work, therefore.

Not far away in either of her chases (2m4f/3m), though last time at Market Rasen they went no pace and there were fences omitted; that could be dodgy form and she's now 0-24.
