Form & Verdict

Triple hurdle winner for Henry Daly last year but not much has gone to plan on her three starts this season; changed hands for £4,000 last month; needs to have been revitalised by recent regime change.

Three handicap wins for previous yard; went into a decline last summer but revitalised when making winning debut for yard over C&D (good to firm; has won on soft) in October and had excuses since; likely to be ridden more patiently again now reunited with Gavin Sheehan; thereabouts.

Two C&D wins for Henry Daly last season but lost her way in the summer; new trainer brought her out to win in game style at Hereford last month and that alone earns her a place on the shortlist, even in a better race.

0-7 over hurdles and does not seem to be making any progress but gave good account when second in Market Rasen maiden (2m, good) last month and should be fine over this longer trip on her handicap debut.

Below form on slower-than-ideal ground in November on latest outing but made the frame on first five starts this season (one over C&D); current mark is workable; no surprise if she features.

Form & Verdict

Kept on for modest third from out of the weights in two selling handicaps in recent weeks, more recently on slower-than-ideal ground at Newton Abbot (2m2f, soft); that form isn't anything to get excited about but she's 14lb lower off her correct mark here.

Low-mileage 6yo who kept on for very respectable third here (2m, soft) on handicap debut in January; not seen again since but today's trip-and-ground combination should also suit; a possible if fully tuned up.

She could do with settling better now up in trip but she kept on well for third at Ludlow (2m5f, good to soft) last time and, with her dam having won over 2m7f, she's open to improvement at this distance; possible player.
