Form & Verdict

Ran well on chasing debut in November, after a break, but was pulled up later that month and now reverts to hurdling; given a chance by the handicapper and will be suited by today's trip/ground; contender if back on song.

Tried chasing in November, pulled up on second attempt, but took advantage of his reduced mark straightaway back over hurdles in a nine-runner C&D race (soft) 17 days ago, leading two out and well on top despite final-flight blunder; back up 7lb, which may well demand a career best but he's respected.

Overcame some interference to win going away at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) in November and is also very well suited by this C&D, but he was safely held here last month and has never been one to rely upon.

Exploited some help from the handicapper when dead-heating for first here (2m3f, good to soft) on Boxing Day and was placed off today's mark at Huntingdon (2m3f, good to soft) this month; probably needs a boost from the new cheekpieces today, though, and others have more appealing profiles.

Seemed to run well when second of three in C&D novice last May, but the value of that form is open to question and she was well beaten when 80-1 for handicap debut at Lingfield (2m3f, good to soft) in November; 2lb wrong today; significant improvement is required.

Placed once from eight Irish points; all three runs over hurdles have been over the extended 2m5f at Fontwell on good ground this May/June, beaten just under 4l by the only other finisher on second occasion; that's not solid form but she makes this handicap debut off a lowly mark.

Placed once from eight Irish point starts; both hurdle runs over C&D; tailed off in the first and then beaten less than 4l by only surviving rival in the second; probably unwise to take that literally.
