Form & Verdict

Ran surprisingly well at the weights when fourth in a mares' novice chase at Warwick (2m4f, soft) last month but failed in a major way to back it up when pulled up last week at Ffos Las (2m3f, heavy) in the handicap won by Committee Of One; could bounce back.

Kept on well for second at Ludlow (3m, soft; refitted cheekpieces) last month, her second start after a long absence, and faced very tough task at the weights when creditable fourth in Warwick novice chase (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago; looks the one to beat here.

Modest hurdler but she won a point and was having only her third run over fences when delivering a career best to finish second at Taunton (2m5f, soft) when 10lb out of the weights; now 3lb higher but she has something to build on.

Runner-up in point bumper but precious little to show for three runs over hurdles (on soft and good to soft), the latest after wind surgery; goes chasing with an awful lot to prove but this is her handicap debut.

Defied 5lb higher mark over hurdles last April (2m4f, good to soft) but has been lacklustre this season, including in three chase runs; did at least shape a bit better last time (beaten 15l) and this is weak.

Won in fairly good style off today's mark over hurdles at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) last April but struggled on seasonal debut in November and pulled up in two subsequent chases; big leap of faith required to support her after those lacklustre efforts.

Bettered underwhelming chase debut when close second at Leicester (2m6f, soft; first-time cheekpieces) in January and has claims if judged on that performance but was struggling before stamina might have been an issue over 3m1f at Plumpton this month and can't be relied upon.

Much the better of two chase runs when close second at Leicester (2m6f, soft; first-time cheekpieces) in January; the value of that form is open to question (market principals all disappointed) but she might have more to offer if the headgear continues to aid.
