Consistent thus far, with form figures (points/hurdles) reading 4223; both rules starts at Hexham; now wears tongue-tie; holds solid claims back up in trip and should go well again.

Second in an Irish point in April (3m, good); in the frame in a 2m4f maiden and a 2m mares' hurdle at Hexham this term (soft/heavy); stiffer task here.

Useful sort (Listed placed) in bumpers last term for Fergal O'Brien; therefore should improve on Wetherby reappearance effort (2m3f; faded into fourth); possibilities.

Interesting on some of her bumper form as wasn't far behind Larchmont Lass in a Listed race at Sandown; the form of her Carlisle win (2m3f, soft; Drumlee Spud third) carries substance but now has to rebound from a poor run at Doncaster (well behind Baby Shally).

Gamely beat Lunar Discovery at Carlisle (2m3f, soft) last month on third run for new stable; worse off with that rival but could well improve further over this longer distance, being a point winner who has some 3m winners in pedigree; shortlisted.

Runner-up in two bumpers early last year (soft/heavy); well beaten on recent hurdle/seasonal debut at Kelso (2m, soft) but could be sharper for that run and she's bred to be suited by this step up in trip; not written off.

Placed in Listed bumper at Cheltenham last month, returned to the scene of her 66-1 spring win (rules debut); those pieces of form give her leading claims switched to hurdles.

Won the bumper on this card a year ago (good ground) and was placed in a Listed bumper here (soft) in November; made low-key start to hurdling career in the winter, though, and her dominant win from the front at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft) in February came in an uncompetitive race.

Verdict

Dangan Cloud has the best of the hurdles form on offer but she’s up against a few mares who hold stronger claims on their bumper figures, MICKS JET being top of the list. March Wind (second choice) is open to progress this season, while Dontyawantme should build on her reappearance effort.[Steve Boow]
