Form & Verdict

No match for the winner when runner-up over C&D (soft) the last twice and vulnerable if bumping into anything ahead of the handicapper, but she can give another good account and that might be enough to see her win this.

J: Charlie Deutsch

Won the 2m4f handicap hurdle at this meeting last year (on good); reliable sort who's progressive too, judged on her 9l win in four-runner race at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) four weeks ago, which was her sixth run and first win over fences; often front-runner but not that day; 6lb higher today and could still do with jumping more fluently (earlier fell three out here in December) but she needs plenty of respect.

Bumper/hurdles winner, including at Ludlow; has proved consistent in her completed chase starts, most recently second over C&D (soft) against male rivals; holds solid claims off 1lb lower back in a mares' event.

Form & Verdict

Made all at Taunton (2m, soft) in January on third chase start and bounced back from Sandown flop with fair third of five at Hereford (2m3f, soft) last month; can make another bold bid and he's in with a chance.

Something seemed amiss last time; made all at Taunton (2m, soft) earlier in January and still looks open to further progress over fences; has form at up to 2m4f; remains of interest.

J: James Bowen

T: Warren Greatrex

Record of 1-9 over hurdles but already looking a better chaser and, on just his third run in this discipline, he made all the running for a narrow success at Taunton (2m, soft; only did enough); raised in class off a 4lb higher mark but very much heading in the right direction.

Form & Verdict

Tailed off on British debut in January 2023 and absent since; however, he's a three-time hurdle winner in France and is just the type his trainer excels with; no surprise if he plays a leading role on today's chase debut.

Bought for 195,000euros after winning an Auteuil handicap (2m2f, very soft) in June; RPR of 127 suggests this mark should be realistic.

Form & Verdict

Runs off a mark fully 10lb lower than when winning over hurdles at Ffos Las (2m4f, soft) in January 2023; however, he's been a long way below that level this season over fences and the first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) need to prompt major improvement.

Hurdle winner of 5lb higher in early 2023; entitled to have needed the run when well-held fifth on return to chasing in November but dropped away very tamely in straight at Chepstow in January and comes here with some questions to answer.
