Form & Verdict

Won by 5l on debut in Irish mares' maiden point (3m, good) in March and sold for £55,000 the following month; soundly beaten at 9-2 on last month's bumper debut at Warwick (2m, soft) and considerable improvement is needed, but this longer trip could help and she retains potential.

Wincanton novice winner in December (2m5f, heavy); was conceding a penalty to Larchmont Lass back there last month but was beaten some 21l by the Nicholls mare; subsequent improved third in a 3m Listed race (first-time tongue-tie) raises hopes but others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

8yo who has had some big absences in her career since winning a heavy-ground point on her debut in 2020, and back from her latest layoff she easily won at Exeter (2m7f, good to soft) 16 days ago; the bounce factor is a worry but she has leading claims if reproducing that latest form.

Lightly raced 9yo who returned from a long absence to win at Exeter (2m7f, good to soft) in November; placed on all four starts since, with latest 17l second coming in a Haydock Grade 2 (3m, heavy); effective over shorter; should give another good account.

Lightly raced 9yo who was a good second of 16 in mares' handicap at Newbury (3m, soft) last month; others here may have greater potential but, with the handy 7lb allowance she receives from the males, that latest performance reads pretty well; might not be far away.

Form & Verdict

Won a bumper at Plumpton (2m1f, soft) in April on her second start; no match for the first two when third on last month's hurdle debut at Plumpton (2m, good to soft) but there's room for improvement in her jumping and this half-sister to Frodon could improve for the step up in trip; respected.

Displayed promise in the bumper sphere and it's possible this step up in trip will suit on hurdle debut; perhaps she needed last month's return to action at Warwick but improvement is needed if she's to make an impact.
