7/2
Point-to-point winner that showed signs of ability on her first two starts but some moderate efforts since, then, although not disgraced at Kempton last time out. Tongue tie goes on here, which may help,

Getting the hang of things now and turned in her best effort to date when a close third at Warwick on latest start. Likely to have quicker ground to contend with and significantly upped in trip though, so new questions to answer.

Found the step up in trip very much in her favour when coming good at Kempton latest, staying on well for pressure and showing a good attitude. Cheekpieces there seemed to help as well (retained today) and every chance of the follow-up.,

Hasn't set the world alight in a couple of starts although definite signs of ability and will improve. Better ground here likely to help but you'd like her to show a bit more before getting involved.

Useful form in bumpers but she's not reproduced it in four hurdles starts yet, and was never in the hunt at Warwick last time. Best form has come on quick ground, so may do better but in truth, she needs to.

Best run of five so far came at Towcester, where she found the combination of heavy ground and the stiff finish a bit too much to handle but still ran well. Midfield finish latest suggests she needs a bit more time, and may be one for handicaps.

10/1
Her third to the useful Nube Negra at Doncaster in January looks a good effort but she couldn't match that on her next start at Huntingdon. Upped in trip again, which should help a lot (related to Gold Cup winner Synchronised) and may bounce back.

7/2
Has shown form in two of her four handicap starts to date and shapes like she's ready for this step up in trip, having stayed on late to take third at Ludlow last time. All her form on soft ground so far, so likely quicker conditions is a question.

610-12OR: 96
10/1
Beaten big distances in the main but her third at Wetherby (heavy ground) in March suggests she's not without ability. Hard to know what to expect here and on balance, others make a bit more appeal.

Tailed off at big prices all five starts to date and although this represents a more realistic chance for her, hard to see where the necessary improvement is coming from.

Betting

Forecast

La Fille Francaise (7/2), Little Millie (7/2), Goodgirlteresa (7/2), Timeforben (9/2), Drill Baby Drill (9/1), Your Wan (10/1), Gogo Baloo (10/1), Schap (33/1), Megaboost (40/1), Her Dream (50/1)

Verdict

Timeforben looked a different horse once stepped up in trip and given cheekpieces at Kempton and from just 4lb higher, has every chance of following up that win. But YOUR WAN has caught the eye a couple of times now and looks to be crying out for a step up in trip after getting outpaced at Huntingdon last time. A better effort can be expected here. A drop of rain would help the chances of Goodgirlteresa and La Fille Francaise and neither can be easily discounted.
  1. Your Wan
  2. Timeforben
  3. Goodgirlteresa
