Form & Verdict

Twice accounted for Manimole last May (good to soft/good) and reportedly benefited from a return to positive tactics when coming clear in a 2m3f handicap at Hereford in November; she's likeable but perhaps lacks the same potential as some of today's rivals.

Having a good season over hurdles with two wins in May (2m3f/2m4f, good/good to soft) and another in a mares' novice handicap in November (2m3f, good); career-best form last time when runner-up in a mares' novice at Lingfield (2m, soft; awarded the race on the day but lost it on appeal); should go well again.

Excellent jumping pedigree and unchallenged for both wins on good ground, a Southwell bumper last summer and Hereford maiden hurdle in November; Nico De Boinville's preference for Pawapuri is a glaring negative but this mare is promising.

Henderson filly who has a useful pedigree; justified favouritism with 5l success in Southwell bumper (2m, good) five months ago; the form isn't strong but she drew nicely clear towards the line and is open to progress; should be suited by this longer trip; respected.

Form & Verdict

Point winner who was third in a bumper for Jonjo O'Neill; hasn't looked back since moving to Gavin Cromwell, winning two bumpers (one a Listed) before a most taking hurdling debut at Naas (2m, soft) when in control of matters throughout; that was a modest race for which she was odds-on, but it's hard to know how good she is.

Splendidly tough mare who was notching her third win of a busy campaign when trouncing ten rivals in a novice over C&D (good to soft; made most of the running) three weeks ago; that was her best effort by some way and there seemed to be no fluke about it; probably again the one to beat.

Useful Flat form for William Haggas and has the physique for jumping; highly tried last winter but has come good with comfortable wins at Wincanton (1m7f, soft) and Haydock (2m3f Listed, heavy), latterly beating another mare on the upgrade; looks to be improving all the time and has strong form claims as it is.
