Form & Verdict

Won four in a row for Alan King early in 2022 but she was 0-7 for another yard last year; bit to prove after 231 days off but she's rejoined Alan King and is well treated on her old form; needs checking in market.

Form & Verdict

Has run in three bumpers and three hurdle races, 10-11 and making much of the running when she won well in a maiden at Hereford (2m, soft) in February latest; more is needed on this handicap debut but she looked promising last time.

Progressive mare; off the mark in a Hereford mares' maiden in February (2m, soft; made all) before finishing second in a Stratford mares' handicap last time (2m, good to soft; didn't jump well); good run in a Cheltenham bumper on good ground last April; interesting.

Won two juvenile hurdles; has not quite lived up to that, including in three handicaps, so others have more pressing claims.

J: Brendan Powell

Won two juvenile hurdles last season; well behind Jaminska here on her return and then proved no match for an easy winner at Ludlow (both handicaps); has to raise her game on these terms.

5 yo Filly

OR: 116

Form & Verdict

Won two juvenile hurdles (one Listed) last season and had a crack at a Grade 1; found it tough in this season's two handicaps but dropped 5lb in the process and a move away from soft ground may help; considered.

Won twice (one Listed) in her juvenile hurdle season; stepped up on two handicap runs at the end of 2023 when back from a break to finish a close fourth over C&D (good to soft) 18 days ago; player if building on that for in-form stable.
