Seemingly boosted by first-time cheekpieces when winning small-field mares' chase here (2m5f, good) in March but was pulled up on both subsequent outings (chase/hurdle) and has become a hard one to predict.

Bounced back from a disappointing seasonal debut (over hurdles) to win narrowly at Taunton (2m7f, good) last month; will be fine on today's slower ground but has become a hard mare to predict and is on a career-high mark.

Ran poorly on last season's sole run over hurdles, while taking well to fences until a respiratory noise was reported on final outing; cheekpieces last two; needs to be back at her best on this first run since wind surgery.

0-12 over fences and has become somewhat frustrating but was placed over C&D (good to soft) in April and returned from break with two good hurdle runs this autumn (2m5f/2m4f, good); current mark is workable; ought to be in the shake-up.

Built upon promising hurdle debut when narrow winner of Warwick novice (2m, soft) in March but his handicap debut in April was disappointing (2m4f) and he was tailed off (albeit on heavy ground) when switched to fences this month (3m); still has plenty of time to get back on track but comes here with a bit to prove.

Low-mileage 6yo who improved when switched to handicap hurdles last October, winning twice on good ground (2m2f/2m3f); safely held on seasonal/chase debut last month, though, and needs that outing to have brought him on; goes beyond 2m5f for first time under rules.

Form & Verdict

Yet to build upon last December's heavy-ground hurdle win for Samuel Drinkwater and was just a respectable fourth of six on seasonal/chase debut at Kelso (2m7f, soft) five weeks ago; needs to better that performance here and is not sure to be suited by the forecast faster ground but may have been perked up by a recent stable switch.

Looked all about stamina when winning 2m3f maiden hurdle at Lingfield (heavy) for previous yard; had an irregular heartbeat when pulled up on stable debut but has since given a likeable display to win over C&D (soft); up 6lb against better opposition but he can progress as a chaser.
