Form & Verdict

Two runs for Kerry Lee in March resulted in two wins, the second over C&D by 34l; interesting to see if another change of scenery will enable her to maintain the good work and has joined a yard in fine form; 17lb higher than for that second win, which asks her a question.

Has made excellent progress for Kerry Lee and Nigel Twiston-Davies over the last year, winning four times (twice here); predictably found Grade 2 mares' chase too hot at last month's Cheltenham Festival but has her sights lowered today and could still have further improvement to come.

Made the running for all four chase wins, at about 3m1f on ground ranging from good to soft; no match for Carole's Pass at Exeter recently and her most recent runs at about this trip, which are very infrequent anyway, give her lots to find.

Front-running mare who overcame a bad mistake three out to trounce her rivals at Ludlow (3m1f, soft) most recently, making it four wins from her last five starts; 2-3 for current stable, thoroughly proven at this sort of trip and may have more to offer but she has plenty to find with three of these on form.

Well beaten on her chasing debut when last seen at Southwell in April; something to prove after that but all four hurdle wins (two of them here) gained on right-handed tracks; could do much better this time.

Form & Verdict

Passed the post first at Ffos Las nine days ago, on her chasing/seasonal debut, but was disqualified for causing interference and placed second; jumped right there and it's in her favour she returns to a right-handed track with cheekpieces back on (her hurdle win came at Taunton wearing the aid); will prove hard to beat if this doesn't come too soon.

Quickly lost her way after finishing first (subsequently demoted to second) on seasonal/chase debut in October and again struggled when reverted to hurdling last month; now only 2lb higher than when winning this race a year ago (good to soft) but it takes a leap of faith to support her.
