Fair efforts when making the frame in two of her three handicaps (2m3f/2m5f) but she needs something extra here and it remains to be seen whether the step up in trip will suit.

0-8 over hurdles and not very consistent but his second of eight off today's mark at Lingfield (2m7f, soft) In November was a good effort, and he was only beaten about 3l when third of four in tactical race over that C&D ten days ago; contender if he takes well to fences at first attempt.
