Effectiveness over a sharp 2m-2m1f plain to see in her Ludlow and Cartmel wins, and no going concerns abound; yet to score outside of mares-only company, however, and little wriggle room off her mid-120s mark.

Readily drew 14l clear to score at Ludlow (2m, soft) this month, after a break, and is now 4-8 over hurdles; contests a deeper race here but her latest 7lb rise could have been worse; can't be ignored in current mood.

Form & Verdict

Won two juvenile hurdles last season (good to soft/good) and signed off with a creditable fourth in a valuable fillies' handicap at Cheltenham (2m1f, good) in April; again she was keen when a disappointing favourite on her reappearance at Taunton (2m3f) but she's better than that; races prominently.

7 yo Mare

OR: 125

Form & Verdict

Returned to hurdles for a dominant 10l success at Chepstow in January (soft) off only a 3lb lower mark but lost her way a little afterwards; following wind surgery she seems back in good order judged on recent chase efforts (0-10 compared with 4-16 hurdling) and has plenty in her favour back in this discipline; should give it a good go from the front.

J: Mr Peter Summers

T: Jane Williams

Returned to form with an easy win under Peter Summers when back over fences at Leicester (2m, soft) last month; that was a first chase victory at the 11th attempt and she beat only two rivals, but it's hard to knock that performance otherwise and a 4lb rise isn't harsh.

Soundly beaten over hurdles last month and evidently not as good as she was but began this season with two very respectable chase runs (one in a Listed race) and is sure to appreciate today's ease in grade; versatile regarding ground; must be considered.

Form & Verdict

Bought for 30,000euros after achieving placed honours in France; she was noticeably weak in the betting when returning from a year off at Wincanton (2m5f; 40-1) and duly ran a quiet race; not the easiest to weigh up and would like to see some confidence behind her this time.

Ex-French maiden; started off for Venetia Williams with two low-key runs in the autumn but her fifth under a very positive ride at Hereford (2m5f, good to soft) this month was much more encouraging; shortlisted.

0-11 in France but some minor honours over hurdles and fences; year off before failing to show much in two handicap hurdles this term, which prevents any confidence in her chance.
