Held on all four starts since switching to hurdles including on heavy ground at Leicester in January. Better ground forecast here should suit on handicap debut.

Placed on good ground in a maiden hurdle at Kilbeggan 13 months ago but disappointing since including the last twice in handicaps. Market support would be interesting back on better ground.

Eight race maiden and struggled on soft ground in two starts so far in 2018. Has run well here in the past and market support would be interesting on handicap debut.

Betting

Forecast

Quantum Of Solace (7/4), Silk Run (7/2), Bahrikate (6/1), Emilyogue (15/2), Cosmic Tigress (10/1), Sense Of Urgency (14/1), Jolie Crickette (16/1), Hidden Dilemma (20/1), Drumnagreagh (22/1), Hot Gossip (33/1)

Verdict

JOLIE CRICKETTE ran with credit when fifth here last time out and she can take this mares handicap hurdle for trainer Nick Alexander. The selection races off a 2lb lower mark here and is taken to get the better of top weight Bahrikate who can put an unseat behind her last time out by finishing third. Hidden Dilemma represents a useful stable and she can finish third on handicap debut.
