Off the mark at the 23rd attempt when readily landing a 2m novice handicap hurdle at Hereford last month; the second was running all over the place in the closing stages and the form doesn't appeal as being strong; more needed to defy a 6lb rise.

Consistent mare who was no match for a clearcut winner on her handicap debut over C&D (soft) but ran perfectly well in second and she's off the same mark here; has less to prove than most.

Consistent mare who has been runner-up twice over 2m on soft ground at Hereford this spring; her second in a bumper on good to soft shows she doesn't need conditions to be testing; likely to give another good account.

Won low-grade handicap on the Flat at Ffos Las (1m2f, soft) last July; showed just about enough in his latest novice at Ludlow (behind a good horse) to merit a second look now handicapping.

Three AW wins at up to 2m in his Irish days; he used to be useful in that sphere and although he's gone the wrong over the last year, there have been only four runs over hurdles; needs much better than his fourth of seven on handicap hurdle debut (2m; 16-1) last time but this is a longer trip.
