T: Richard J Bandey

Made it third-time lucky over fences when hammering two rivals at Fontwell (3m2f, heavy) in December and she found more progress when runner-up at Huntingdon (2m7f, soft) last month; up another 2lb but that latest form looks solid and she's a big player again on her first run after wind surgery.

Form & Verdict

Hurdle winner in France but 0-9 over fences there; ran poorly on her British debut but not last time at Lingfield (2m4f, good to soft) when third to a well-handicapped winner; possibilities if building on that and staying this new trip (unraced beyond 2m6f).

T: Tom Symonds

Dual hurdle winner in France; suggested she might be able to exploit some significant help from the British handicapper when running game race in defeat over C&D (heavy) last month but didn't fire at Huntingdon 18 days ago and needs to put that run behind her; refitted visor replaces cheekpieces; tongue-tie removed.
