Has gained her rules wins over 2m3f on reappearance in each of the last two seasons; form has dipped sharply since the latest one and she has enough to prove back up in trip; change of headgear.

Has a very mixed record over hurdles but was one of two to pull well clear of the others when winning in refitted cheekpieces on seasonal debut at Warwick (2m3f, soft) in November and her subsequent lesser effort came on very testing ground; contender if on a going day.

A major rising force with his handicap wins at Market Rasen (2m4f), Hereford (3m2f, good) and Lingfield (2m7f, soft) on last three outings; the latest was nine days ago and in fine style at 8-13, so it's easy to think he is capable of dealing with a good deal more than this 7lb penalty; due to go up another 6lb in future engagements; may well complete the four-timer.
