T: Ruth Jefferson

Her second 2m4f handicap success when winning here in November (soft) and then second at Market Rasen (2m) to last week's Haydock runner-up Holly; wasn't at the peak of her powers at Catterick last time but had a break since then and seems to go well fresh.

Made it 2-2 in 2m4f handicaps when winning at Musselburgh (soft) in November; bumped into rejuvenated winner when second at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) a fortnight ago and she's a solid contender now back up in trip; won on sole previous visit to Catterick.

Winning pointer who was runner-up on her hurdling debut but hasn't progressed from that and will need to run better than on her handicap debut latest (2m4f, good); this longer trip is entitled to help.

Mopped up in mares' handicap hurdles at up to 3m last season, winning five and the last two were in good style over C&D; more disquiet on what she's done this term, having been competitive only once (here on penultimate start) but she can't be ruled out.

J: William Maggs

T: Jim Goldie

Won at Perth (3m, soft; good ground fine) in September and her heavy defeat on the Flat last month isn't a concern in today's context as she's shown very little in that code this season; however, her last seven wins have all come at Perth and it's a long time since she ran well here.

Form & Verdict

Arrives seeking a protracted hat-trick, having won twice at Perth (2m4f, good to soft; 3m, good) in the spring, the latter easily; remains unexposed and, with the yard's runners in good nick, she's a player if returning in the same form.

Won two in a row in the spring (2m4f/3m, good to soft/good) and she may have needed her next run at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago; wears a first-time tongue-tie and is not written off but she has something to prove, including on the forecast testing ground.

Lost out only by a neck in first-time visor at Bangor (2m3f, good) last month and has now been placed on her last three appearances; 3lb rise does not help matters but it's reasonable to expect another good run.
