Form & Verdict

Kept on gamely to win gruelling handicap chase at Stratford (3m3f, good to soft) in April but ran poorly when switched back to hurdling in June and may find this an insufficient stamina test.

Off the mark under rules in a 3m3f chase at Stratford in April (good to soft); returned from a three-month absence to win a 2m5f handicap hurdle at Newton Abbot in October and followed up over fences at Ffos Las two weeks later; not at her best over hurdles in hat-trick bid last month but no real surprise were she to bounce back.

Game winner of gruelling handicap chase at Stratford (3m3f, good to soft) in April and again looked suited by emphasis on stamina when keeping on well to reel in the long-time leader over hurdles at Newton Abbot (2m5f, soft) last month; probably needs a career best here.

Off the mark with fortunate win here (2m2f, good) in May, her second handicap; below that form over 2m1f in August and not yet proven on ground slower than good but may have further improvement to come.

Lucky to win at Newton Abbot in May when left clear; can be her own worst enemy by refusing to settle and she shot off into a clear lead before collared late on back at Newton Abbot last month (2m5f, soft); comes with risks, especially on this stiffer track.

Form & Verdict

Showed nothing more than minor promise in three 2m maiden/novice hurdles in spring but has a lowly mark for this handicap debut and may benefit from the step up in trip.

0-5 over hurdles for Tom Symonds last season and absent since a poor run in March but kept on for creditable fourth of 16 on handicap debut at Ffos Las (2m4f, good) two starts ago and it will be very interesting to see what Dan Skelton can do with her.

Form & Verdict

Seemingly aided by blinkers when runner-up twice here in novice company this season (2m1f, good/2m2f, good to soft); not bred to benefit from this step up in trip and goes without blinkers today but was unlucky not to finish a bit closer to the target when seventh of 13 (beaten about 7l) on handicap debut here (2m1f, good) six weeks ago; tongue-tie added.

Disappointing at Newton Abbot when last seen in October but the step up to 2m5f may have backfired and she enters the reckoning on her second in a novice there (2m2f, good to soft) last summer; this is only her third handicap and she's not ruled out on her return.
