Five-time hurdle winner on good/good to soft; made the frame on all three starts for this stable in the autumn and showed a good turn of foot when coming from off the pace under a confident ride to win a shade cosily at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) this month after a five-month break; remains well treated on past form despite the 5lb rise for that win; strong chance of a follow-up.

Four-time hurdle winner on good/good to soft; made the frame on all three starts for new stable in the autumn, and the form of his close second over C&D (soft) in November reads very well; back on a sound surface today and will be a danger to all if ready to roll after five-month break.

Form & Verdict

Won two handicaps (2m4f/2m) for Fergal O'Brien last autumn; left November's low-key stable debut behind when fourth at Uttoxeter (2m, soft) this month when returning from a break; that run should set her up nicely for this, she's not fully exposed and is respected back on a more suitable surface.
