Form & Verdict

Won on stable debut at Stratford (2m2f, good) in July and, after a couple of good runs last month, she returned to winning ways in a big-field conditionals' handicap at Taunton (2m, good to soft) last Thursday under Kai Lenihan; escapes a penalty and could be tough to beat today.

Well placed to find three contests since July, including under Kai Lenihan at Taunton and here (C&D, good to soft) the last twice; new mark does demand more and sole run on softer than good to soft was her worst ever, but can't deny she's thriving right now.

Fair maiden on the Flat who showed some promise when runner-up on hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in July; soft ground may not have been ideal at Warwick (2m, soft) 16 days ago; receives valuable 16lb 3yo allowance now handicapping and could play a leading role if conditions suit.

Down the field in three novice hurdles for Lawney Hill in the spring; however, this point winner now goes handicapping off a lowly mark in a first-time tongue-tie on his first outing for Dan Skelton, and it will be no surprise to see a big performance; one to watch in the betting.

Three Flat wins this year, the last two in August/September; his ability in that code suggests he has the potential to be a force off his current jumps mark, but he struggled in the summer on last two hurdle starts.

Form & Verdict

He's not obviously well treated for this handicap debut and he may need further, but this very lightly raced 5yo showed some promise when fifth at Kelso (2m, soft) last month, and his dam was useful which provides optimism he'll continue to improve; possible contender.

Well-beaten fourth in two 4yo hurdles in January and there's a doubt regarding his stamina for this game; down the field on AW in February on final run for Sylvester Kirk and sold for 5,000gns in September; however, he showed ability on the Flat in 2021, he makes his handicap hurdle debut off a basement mark, and his new stable is in excellent form; check the betting.

Some initial Flat promise for his first yard but modest form on the Flat and over hurdles for Sylvester Kirk and left that yard for 5,000gns; cut out very quickly on stable debut at Market Rasen (first handicap; 3-1) and he's not bred for fences; others appeal more.
