Ex-French; came clear to win easily at Fakenham (2m, good to soft) and only just missed out when penalised at Musselburgh (soft); just 1lb higher here and this longer trip could well be a positive judged on French form.

Consistent mare who ran another solid race under a big weight at Fakenham three weeks ago (2m, good) and the winner ran third in last week's Sussex Champion Hurdle; returning to further asks a question of her but she gives the impression that she'll stay.

Couple of encouraging runs in mares' novice races but has been beaten 40l (2m2f) and 23l (3m, again heavy) in her two handicaps; soft ground could be more to her liking and she wouldn't be exposed just yet.

Point winner whose hurdles form includes an eyecatching effort at Kelso (2m) on penultimate start; gives the impression (backed up by pedigree) she'll be suited by this first crack at 3m under rules; still unexposed and looks interesting.
