Form & Verdict

Good second in this race in 2020 on her only appearance at Ascot; got rid of her jockey at the start on last month's reappearance but her second over 2m5f at Ludlow nine days later was on a par with last season's 3m form; considered.

T: Ben Case

Won with nothing to spare at Ascot in November (2m7f, good) when also ridden by Charlie Case and just 1lb lower; her following effort was okay as well and it was quite a strong race in which she was found well wanting at Lingfield; in an ideal world she probably prefers quicker ground than this.

Ran right up to her recent best when winning with nothing to spare at Ascot in November (2m7f, good) and perhaps got racing too far out when a weakener at Kempton (3m, good to soft); now exposed though and others are more intriguing.

Hasn't done herself justice in two previous attempts in this race (on soft; acts on that surface), but she ran right up to her recent best when winning with nothing to spare at Ascot last month (2m7f, good); back up 3lb but still competitively weighted providing she handles the track.

Form & Verdict

No win since a Listed race in January 2021; ran well in a small-field Grade 2 over C&D in January 2022 (her only run at Ascot) and again showed her stamina when beaten a neck in a 3m3f handicap at Newton Abbot (heavy) five weeks ago; it looks as if soft or heavy ground would be preferable.

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 7yo; eased-down winner of a Ludlow maiden (2m5f) in February 2022; handicap debut came over very nearly 3m at Chepstow (again good to soft) last month after 629-day absence and she took that six-runner race by 2l from Fortuna Ligna, looking the winner from some way out under Jack Hogan; up 4lb but may well have more in the tank.

Lightly raced 8yo who has form figures of 21133 over hurdles and was only beaten 3l when a rallying third in a good mares' handicap at Kempton (3m, good to soft) last month; only 1lb higher on this drop back in grade and she still has potential as a stayer; key player.

J: Jack Hogan

T: Fergal O’Brien

Lightly raced; took time to master Fortuna Ligna on return from absence at Chepstow in October (2m7f, good to soft) but ultimately won with a bit in hand; didn't seem as well suited by less of a test at the trip when a persistent close third to Midnightreflection at Ascot in November (good) but the likely good pace here will suit and she still has potential for better.

Form & Verdict

Won three hurdle races at about 3m in the 2021-22 season and also ran creditably in a C&D handicap; had a year off before two heavy defeats this spring, so needs to prove her wellbeing; well treated if back to her best.

Form & Verdict

Deserved April's maiden win and returned to Chepstow for a good front-running second to Lassue in handicap over nearly 3m (again on good to soft) late last month; blinkers (worn on last two starts last season) return; mark unchanged and she may well build on that latest run.

Well held on sole start here (2021); 4-18 over hurdles, with latest win at Market Rasen (2m7f, good) in August but she's been in the doldrums on her other four starts this season; risky.
