Form & Verdict

0-5 since her winning debut but only blip came around the quirky Fakenham two runs back; went down only narrowly last time at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft) and she seems a willing mare; 3lb higher; has a bit to prove on this softer ground.

In-form mare who easily justified favouritism at Sandown (2m, soft; off 10lb lower) two weeks ago; still has low mileage and could well improve further; respected.

Form & Verdict

Sole win in 23 rules races was in a maiden hurdle in April 2022 for Gordon Elliott; goes well on soft ground and, after running his best race for a while at Ascot (1m7f, good to soft), he found everything happening too fast at Kempton behind the smart Rare Edition; can do better this time.

Sole win in 24 races under rules was in a maiden hurdle in April 2022 for Gordon Elliott; goes well on soft ground (runner-up on heavy on Flat) and this season's first two starts for new yard were his best efforts for a while; second of eight in a military race over C&D latest, behind a runaway winner but this 6yo is still one to consider.

Back from a long absence at Fontwell a month ago (2m1f, good to soft) and he pushed a well-in winner all the way; these softer conditions won't inconvenience him if he can hold his form (usually consistent).

Form & Verdict

Ex-Joseph O'Brien; not as good as he was by the looks but placed the last twice (3m, heavy) and produced an honest effort to take second at Haydock; it could be that he needs that longer trip these days but this a stiff track.
