Not an instant success over fences but got his act together and won readily at Plumpton (2m1f, good) 11 days ago; still well handicapped on hurdling form; obvious contender.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish mare who has been disappointing under all codes for current stable since the autumn; last of four in Newcastle chase (2m4f, heavy) on latest outing five weeks ago; needs to stage a revival but today's much faster ground may aid her cause.

22-race maiden; not straightforward and didn't jump with fluency at Fakenham (2m, good; fourth of five, beaten 15.5l) last time, so it's no surprise to see a visor fitted; hasn't had many opportunities over fences (0-3) though, and does continue to ease in the weights.

Scored over C&D (good to soft) on seasonal debut in November and has remained in good form since but usually knocks about in Class 5 races and may find a couple of today's rivals too strong.
