Form & Verdict

Excellent Flat pedigree and made a winning start in bumpers for her previous Flat yard at Huntingdon in late 2022 (1m5f, good), after which she was bought for £160,000; that debut form hasn't worked out at all well but she did it easily and is now with Nicky Henderson; penalised.

Hooded when a clear second of six on debut at Fontwell (good) in September but in no headgear (as today) she was tailed off at Plumpton; not entirely sure what to expect after that mixed start.

Out of an unraced half-sister to smart jumper Breedsbreeze; clear second of six on debut at Fontwell (good) in September, form that was recently given a good boost when the winner beat geldings to follow up; hood removed today; can't be ignored.

Clear of the rest when beaten 3l in a heavy-ground Irish point in October; difficult to know what to make of that form with the winner also unraced since, but she clearly has ability and has joined a respected yard.

Verdict

It was a weak bumper that KUTAIBA won at Huntingdon in late 2022 but she did it easily and later changed hands for £160,000. She could be up to defying a penalty, perhaps at the expense of Jakana who showed some promise here on her debut. Some of the newcomers are interesting, notably Thyme Hill’s half-sister Extra Cover.[Alistair Jones]
