Form & Verdict

Won over fences on stable debut last February but ran poorly when reverting to hurdling in October, after a break, and was no match for wide-margin winner when second of four in refitted cheekpieces six weeks ago; on a good mark now and handles slow ground well but needs to respond positively to first-time blinkers.

Has shown some fine front-running form this year since these blinkers went on, with two wins at Exeter (2m5f, heavy/soft) sandwiching a good second to a progressive winner at Warwick (3m1f, soft); had plenty in hand last time and can make another bold bid up 7lb.

Form & Verdict

Came good at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) at end of last season, her seventh hurdling start, and has performed well on both appearances this term, including a close third behind Chloe's Court over C&D (soft); effective on soft/heavy ground; ought to make her presence felt again.

Was looking on about the right mark after his successful handicap debut at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in October but stepping up to 3m in new cheekpieces triggered a vastly improved performance at Wincanton (heavy) where he was in command a long way out and won by 21l; in deeper waters this time with a 12lb higher mark to cope with, but he's unexposed at the trip.

Reportedly treated for ulcers before displaying much-improved form to win a 3m Ludlow handicap by 11l (soft; 7lb lower); perhaps heavy ground didn't suit when tailed off at Exeter; better expected this time, for all that further suits her well.
