Has somewhat mixed record over fences but looked in excellent nick when winning comfortably by 11l at Taunton (2m5f, soft) last month and does not look harshly treated with 4lb rise; today's longer trip will suit; obvious contender if in the right mood again.

Form & Verdict

Winner and twice runner-up (including in this race last year) in three C&D starts; went off the boil in late spring and she didn't look about to take advantage of a handy mark at Doncaster in December; however the return to this track is a plus and she could turn things round.

Not firing on all cylinders this season but has become well handicapped, and seemed to be travelling pretty well in second place before slipping and unseating rider on home turn at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) recently.

Seems versatile regarding trip/ground and has become well handicapped but was unable to lay a glove on Juniper when second at Taunton (2m5f, soft) last month and needs to up her game here.

Form & Verdict

Chase wins at 2m4f (good) and 3m (good to soft) but bettered those efforts when a cracking third in a competitive handicap at Cheltenham (2m, good to soft) in November; another useful effort over 2m4f (soft) there next time but out of depth in only start since; good claims down in class.

Headstrong mare who settled okay in the first-time hood at Ascot last week (2m1f, good) but found nothing significant for pressure once the chips were down; has the form to feature but she's not one to rely on.

Form & Verdict

Made it 2-2 at Carlisle (2m5f; both on soft) when winning the same race for the second time this month (first-time visor replaced blinkers, as today); acts on sharp right-handed tracks as well and, despite going back up 4lb, her first Carlisle win came off this mark; looks good for a big run.

Returned to form with small-field win in first-time visor at Carlisle (2m5f, soft) last month; remains on a workable mark and will be fine over today's longer trip but was struggling to keep up with Juniper before falling quite heavily at three out at Taunton (2m5f, soft) on latest outing.

Hasn't threatened this season but he faced a tough Listed assignment last time and is now 4lb lower than when winning this last year (soft); not ruled out with a first-time visor replacing blinkers.
