Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 6yo who rallied gamely for narrow success on last month's handicap hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy; front pair clear); 9yo higher now but has obvious scope to improve again and connections are evidently keen to switch this Irish point winner to fences.

Jumping error contributed to disappointing effort at Chepstow (second chase start) last month when bidding for heavy-ground hat-trick; not fully exposed but needs to avoid mistakes.

Form & Verdict

0-6 over hurdles last season but didn't run as badly as eventual 39l defeat might suggest in series final at Cheltenham (3m, good) in April, where a jumping error seemed to knock the stuffing out of her; resumes on a tempting mark and should be okay on today's ground; tongue-tie fitted.

0-8 over fences but went close at Ffos Las (2m5f, heavy) on reappearance; lesser effort at Newbury since came in a deeper race and different headgear; could well rebound in this field with cheekpieces reapplied.

Ex-French 5yo who was runner-up over hurdles on British debut in November 2022; yet to build upon that performance, though, and was well beaten in Warwick handicap (2m4f, soft) on last month's British chasing debut.

0-10 (0-6 over fences) but this 6yo has run well on his last three starts, most recently third to No Hubs No Hoobs at Wincanton (3m1f, heavy; beaten about 4l); he's 6lb better off with the winner and could be thereabouts.
