Made only one start for Ron Hodges when pulled up at a big price in a bumper after her saddle slipped early. In good hands now and may improve a bit for that, but she needs to.

Her fairly distant third to Goldslinger at Newton Abbot in April actually represents a reasonable bit of form in this lowly contest but a dreadful effort latest rather tempers any confidence in her. Place chances all the same.

On form, looks head and shoulders above the rest of these, placed in novice and handicap company last season. Not one for maximum faith after stopping quickly last time but this is a big step down in class, and she looks the one to beat.

Very moderate on the Flat, showing very little, well beaten in a point-to-point and recent spin on the Flat and hard to see why she should do any better here.

Only had the one start when tailed right off at Warwick (sent off 100/1) on heavy ground in a novice hurdle. Better ground here may help but it needs to.

Well beaten in a bumper and then showed she has temperament as well by swerving out at a hurdle early at Towcester last time, unseating her rider. Hard to make any sort of a case for.

Showed a modicum of promise on Newbury debut and again on hurdles debut at Ludlow despite finishing well beaten. May improve, but worrying to see her dropped to this level so quickly.

Betting

Forecast

Miss Adventure (1/3), Quimba (5/1), Geni Johnson (10/1), Flow From Devon (16/1), Ede's The Business (25/1), Opera Buffa (33/1), Call Sign Charlie (50/1), Sequinsatdawn (80/1)

Verdict

This is very weak, and looks a great chance for MISS ADVENTURE to get one on the scoresheet. She may not be the most willing in a fight but it probably won't come to that here, with none of her opponents showing anything like the level of form she has. Geni Johnson may be best of the rest, and Quimba at least may have a bit of improvement in her. Other than those three, hard to find many positives about the rest.
