J: Shane Quinlan

T: Katy Price

Irish maiden point winner; low-level form under rules and she hasn't looked straightforward, including when front-running in a hood on last two starts, setting up a big lead on latest.

5 yo Filly

OR: 74

Form & Verdict

Ended up with too much to do on her handicap debut in May but last month's third of seven at Southwell (2m4f, good; first-time tongue-tie) was a step forward, and she may still have a bigger run in her.

Form & Verdict

Displayed minor promise in three maiden/novice hurdles this spring, most recently when well-held third at Uttoxeter (2m, good) last month; moves up in trip here and should have improvement to come in handicaps.

Well down the field at huge odds in three 2m novice/maiden hurdles in the autumn; gets to race on a sound surface for the first time here but still makes only limited appeal on handicap debut; hood added.

Kept on well from unpromising position to take second over C&D (good) in May but managed only fourth when warm favourite at Fontwell last month and is now 0-6 over hurdles; needs a boost from the first-time blinkers.

J: Ben Godfrey

T: Anthony Honeyball

Useful on the Flat for the Charltons; promise in maiden/novice hurdles last year and perhaps found soft ground against him when pulled up on handicap hurdle debut ten weeks ago; may fare better returned to drying ground.

6 yo Filly

OR: 83

Form & Verdict

Pulled up when tried over 3m1f in May, after a break, but might have needed that outing and is quite well handicapped if judged on 2m-2m4f form from early part of last season.

Bluebella

J: Robert Dunne

Tongue tied first time when winning by 6l at Worcester (2m, good) last May; better form in defeat since but it was not one of her peak efforts when upped from 2m4f to 2m7f at Uttoxeter last time.

4 yo Colt

OR: 100

Form & Verdict

Placed in both handicap hurdles, more recently when second of 13 at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good; first-time visor) last month; nudged up only 1lb for that and is likely to be right in the thick of things again.

Not beaten that far but never looked dangerous when ninth of 11 on handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good to soft; most flights omitted) in May; still unexposed but clearly needs to improve.

Showed no significant promise in his three qualifying races, but kept on well from off the pace for third here (2m, good) on handicap debut a fortnight ago and there's a good chance today's longer trip will suit.

Enjoyed a revival and won three times in early part of last season (all 2m, good); back on a good mark now but returned from break with two down-the-field runs this spring and needs to get back in the groove.
