Form & Verdict

Shaped with promise behind Grain Of Hope on her hurdling/stable debut at Ludlow (fifth of 11) last month and she was a fair second of four back on the Flat at Lingfield (2m, AW) last Sunday; hood is now added and she has possibilities if she can find some improvement back in this sphere.

1m4f turf and 2m hurdle winner; same mark as when second in a small-field 2m event at Lingfield (Polytrack) last month; returns to this code after defeat over hurdles latest but she has the form to be very competitive back down in trip.

Form & Verdict

Went very close in a 1m6f Flat handicap in July (RPR 69) in her final run for Charlie Johnston; runner-up in her first two hurdle runs for this yard before justifying support at Ludlow (2m, good) last month; has a penalty but that was a convincing success last time and she's open to more progress in this sphere; key player.

J: Richard Patrick

T: Emma Lavelle

Limited on the Flat despite threatening a couple of times; never out of the first two in first four hurdle runs and she had a tough task from out the weights at Cheltenham last month; still has potential in this sphere and she's not ruled out back in calmer waters at this new trip; her Ludlow win came at 2m (good) but she looked a strong stayer on the Flat.

J: Freddie Gingell

T: Emma Lavelle

Limited on the Flat despite threatening a couple of times; never out of the first two in four hurdles, winning decisively on good ground at Ludlow before finishing a clear second on good to soft at Fakenham (four ran); this represents a stiff task on handicap debut from 3lb out of the weights.

Form & Verdict

Finished down the field in four Flat runs (1m2f-1m7f) in France this year but she has a striking pedigree and changed hands for 40,000euros in July; now goes hurdling for Ian Williams and she needs watching in market on return.

0-11 under both codes and recent efforts don't suggest a win is imminent; tongue-tie given a go on this big step up in trip, but makes limited appeal unless attracting support.

Ex-French 4yo; no great shakes in three juvenile hurdles for new yard this winter and she's been well held back on the Flat in last three runs; mark continues to fall but she's now 0-10 and others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict

Modest eight-race maiden on the Flat; some signs of ability in three hurdle runs for this yard but she's finished some way behind behind Grain Of Hope in her last two starts and has work to do to turn the tables with her old rival.
