Form & Verdict

0-5 over hurdles but was placed in two 2m4f handicaps last month (heavy/good) and could quite plausibly have a lot more to offer over today's much longer trip.

Safely held on handicap debut in February (3m, soft) but fared better when fourth on both outings in April (2m5f, good/3m, good to soft); could still have a bigger run in her if this longer trip suits; shortlisted.

Unexposed after only four hurdle runs, but was soundly beaten when last of five on handicap debut at Taunton (3m, soft) in February and needs today's faster ground to show her in a much better light.

Her second at Fontwell was up with the best form she showed last season and unseated early on when favourite at Leicester two months ago; should go well, for all that she's yet to prove herself beyond 2m6f.

Disappointing mare who raced rather lazily and probably didn't achieve a great deal when remote second in Fakenham maiden (2m4f, good) 12 days ago; should be fine over today's trip but remains difficult to enthuse over.

Seemingly aided by first-time cheekpieces and/or tongue-tie when causing 33-1 surprise at Taunton (3m, good) last month, her eighth start over hurdles; 7lb higher here but might use that success as a springboard.

Others have more pressing claims judged on her four handicaps (2m, 2m5f, 2m4f and 3m); 5lb out of the handicap and a 5lb claimer is recruited.

Was quite exposed in Ireland but she was off the mark on second start for this yard, at Bangor in August (2m7f, good); has not fared as well in two runs on good to soft since, though, and nothing in her rules record as yet to suggest this slower ground will suit.
