3/1

Slight improvement on previous form in recent starts at Plumpton and Kempton last time out, drops in class for this mares' contest and enter calculations as such.

102-rated hurdler who won on the Flat (1m2f, good) in France. Last couple of outings over hurdles fail to instil confidence and current mark looks demanding.

Point-to-point winner but well held at big prices in four starts over hurdles and hard to make a case for at present following tame show at Uttoxeter this month.

5/1

Mare won a 2m handicap hurdle at Fakenham in November, springing a 25/1 surprise off a mark of 88. Four runs since much less convincing and needs a good bounce back here.

Failed to figure in six outings under rules though beaten just 11L at Southwell (2m4½f, good) in penultimate start when sent off 66/1. Didn't repeat that since at Uttoxeter.

Maiden, unplaced in eight starts over hurdles, best effort came when 4½L fifth of nine at Worcester in September over this trip on good ground. Rated 6lb lower now, but still hard to recommend.

Has twice shown a bit of form (at big prices) to be in the frame at this track in maidens, though yet to replicate that in handicaps. On a tough enough mark for her achievements.

Well beaten off on all her most recent efforts and can't be considered a likely winner in current frame of mind. Pulled up last month at Taunton.

Has on a couple of occasions looked to show some ability in handicaps on good ground. Lightly-raced of late though with some developing jumping problems. Gets array of first-time headgear for this seasonal bow.

Betting

Forecast

Atalanta's Gold (3/1), Scotsbrook Night (9/2), Dizzey Heights (5/1), Our Phillie Lily (6/1), Ortenzia (15/2), Sprogzilla (12/1), Boola River (14/1), Nicheinthemarket (14/1), Stupid Cupid (20/1), Civitesses (25/1)

Verdict

This doesn't look to be a deep race of its type and so it won't be a surprise if ATALANTA'S GOLD can land the finale having shaped better at Plumpton and Kempton recently. Nicheinthemarket went well at Southwell two starts back at a big price but lacks consistency while Civitesses has shown glimpses of ability at times. It will be interest to see if Our Phillie Lily attracts any market support having disappointed supporters last time.
