Ex-Irish; placed in two bumpers for Liz Lalor early last year (soft/heavy); off since April; interesting on her jumps/stable debut on her first run since wind surgery.

Placed in two Irish bumpers last season (both soft to heavy) for Liz Lalor; absent since last April (wind op since) but new trainer does very well with recruits from other yards and this isn't a strong contest for her hurdle debut; could play a leading role.

Promising second at Cork in January (winner well behind Brianna Lily at Naas subsequently) but well-held third behind smart-looking type at Gowran where, in fairness, she may have raced on the slowest ground in the straight; could show up well.

Form & Verdict

Well-beaten second to Followango in a course bumper in November (heavy); improved since a wind op, best effort when close third in a mares' maiden at Lingfield last time (2m3f, soft) when only just behind runner-up Followango; travelled well there and may reverse the form now down in trip.

Form & Verdict

Beat Bluella Bresil by 19l in a bumper here in November (2m, heavy), but was only just in front of her when second on third hurdles run at Lingfield last time (2m3f, soft); drop to 2m not sure to be ideal.

A debut bumper winner here who has been placed on all her four subsequent outings over hurdles, posting a creditable third of six on her handicap debut at Chepstow (2m3f) 30 days ago; she ought to be thereabouts once more.

Winning pointer; has stayed on well for second in a Catterick bumper and maiden hurdle for mares at Hereford, latterly looking ill at ease by going right handed (hung left); Chepstow should suit in a few counts; strong claims.

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Bumper winner (1m5f, good) who has been mostly consistent over hurdles (from good to soft/heavy) and now makes her handicap debut; beaten by respected opposition the last twice (including the Triumph third) and could have a part to play off this mark with James Turner taking off 7lb.

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Bumper winner (1m5f, good) who has also shown ability over hurdles, most recently third of four in juvenile race over C&D (heavy) behind two previous winners (including last week's Triumph third Salver); receives valuable 10lb allowance from the older mares and she's a strong candidate.

Verdict

In a trappy mares’ event in which all five runners have a chance, the choice is BLUELLA BRESIL who was a close third over 2m3f last time and could be suited by this drop back in trip. Followango, who has twice finished in front of her, and point winner Largy Force may be the ones to chase her home.[Colin Russell]
