Runner-up on first two starts this term, latterly over C&D (good to soft) after wind surgery and a five-month break; that good show preceded further improvement when she got off the mark at the ninth attempt and she did it with a 25l win in seven-runner handicap at Doncaster (2m3f, good to soft); 11lb rise today but it's hard to be confident that it will have her measure.

Bumper winner who beat three rivals to win on her hurdle debut at Huntingdon (2m3f, good) in October, before a solid third at Fontwell (2m3f, heavy) last month; has the potential to be better than her opening mark.

First and second in two bumpers before a heavy defeat in Aintree's Grade 2; nicely on top at the finish when making a successful debut at Huntingdon (2m3f, good), albeit in a very winnable heat; should go on the ground and likely to keep progressing.

Below par on final run last term and same story on last month's reappearance; however, she may have needed that latest run and a case can be made for this lightly raced 9yo judged on last season's best efforts.

Form & Verdict

Well-beaten third at Aintree (2m4f, soft) on Boxing Day but that may have been a warm race and she was a good second at Catterick (3m1f, good to soft) two starts ago; continues to edge down weights and not ruled out.

No longer the force of old but was second off 3lb higher here (3m1f, good to soft) in November and both subsequent runs (2m4f/2m3f) were arguably a fair bit better than the distances she was beaten might suggest; swaps cheekpieces for refitted blinkers; can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Her form went the wrong way last year and soft ground would be a concern, but in first-time cheekpieces (retained) she took a step back in the right direction when fourth of 14 here (3m, good to soft) last month and today's shorter trip may well prove a better fit; capable of going well.

Form & Verdict

Not at the top of her game on her three runs this season but she won twice early last year (2m1f/2m, soft/good; including here) and is back below her last winning mark; not discounted, and she's one to watch in the betting.

Soft-ground C&D winner just over a year ago and added to her tally at Doncaster (2m, good) last March; not firing on all cylinders this season, though, and needs a good boost from the first-time cheekpieces today.

Two hurdle wins at about 2m1f this year (soft and good ground), lifting her level at Doncaster in March; had some relatively quiet runs since but looked on the way back at Newcastle recently, is on winning mark and Harry Cobden up for the first time; yard won this in 2020.

Form & Verdict

Won a novice hurdle at Ffos Las (2m, heavy) last January and she's dropped to a handy mark; not written off but she needs to produce more than she's managed in handicaps on her two starts this season.

Won a novice hurdle at Ffos Las (2m, heavy) last January; backward steps in her three handicaps this season (favourite on latest) so connections now reach for a tongue-tie and cheekpieces.
