Winner at Taunton in November over just shy of 3m from a mark of 97. Continued to go well in three novice events since without winning. Solid claims here with trainer in fine form (5-26).
Good effort over C&D recently on second start after undergoing wind surgery, bodes well and should mount a challenge.
Runner-up over C&D in March on second chase start, mare since gone well again at Uttoxeter, taking well to this game and in the mix here.
Slow but stays well on good ground and was twice a winner last season. Mark probably fine but may need this after his winter break and others, for today, make more appeal.
Sole chase win 10 attempts came in 2m6½f Uttoxeter novice last June, pulled up last month on return to action at Newton Abbot and needs to leave that run well behind.
Rated much higher over hurdles but yet to suggest he'll take to this game in three starts, latest when pulled up at Chepstow (3m2f, soft) last month. Watching brief for now.
Not a reliable jumper over hurdles, pulled up sole previous try over fences and poor over timber at Ludlow (2m5f, soft) last time. Hard to make the case for.
Won 2-12 in point-to-points, including on good ground. Yet to make any impact in four attempts over fences under rules and looks out of her depth.
Flatters to deceive, failing to complete in four of five chase starts, with a fall at Towcester and unseat at Stratford most recently. May put things together somewhere, sometime but hard to predict when that will be.
