Form & Verdict

Badly out of form for Chris Down last season and flopped when warm favourite for last month's stable debut but has since undergone wind surgery and could still stage a revival for Kerry Lee; wears first-time tongue-tie and refitted cheekpieces here; interesting to see whether her backers wade in again.

Out of form last season; had wind surgery before winning easily on heavy ground at Ffos Las (2m4f) in December, her first run in this equipment combination (kept since); bred to stay well but did little when trying 3m2f on good off this 8lb higher mark at Hereford five weeks ago; very mixed messages.

Yet to show anything more than glimmers of promise after six hurdling starts; gets a chance to compete off her correct mark here (making her effectively 14lb lower than last time) but still makes only limited appeal.

Three-time course winner on heavy ground (two hurdles, one chase); placed off 4lb higher over fences here (2m5f, good to soft) in October, after a break, but two below-par efforts have followed and she needs the first-time cheekpieces to give her a boost today.

Just too strong for Guilietta when scoring on last month's seasonal debut at Warwick (2m3f, soft; front pair clear) and is now 2-4 for Ben Case; went the wrong way after last season's winning reappearance, which is a worry, but her recent 5lb rise ought to be manageable.

Fair form when placed on the Flat in Ireland in summer 2022; cut little ice in three juvenile hurdles for Sean Curran last season and makes handicap hurdle debut after ten-month absence but still worth a glance in the betting; wears first-time blinkers; unraced on ground slower than good to soft.
