Group 1 Flat winner in 2014 (2m4f Prix du Cadran), and beaten just two necks by Dartmouth in the Group 2 Yorkshire Cup in 2017. Made a belated, but smooth winning hurdles debut at Kelso in May (2m5f good); impossible to oppose.
Bought from Ian Williams for £6,500 in November 2017, this five-time Flat winner (57-rated) has an absolute mountain to climb against a classy rival on hurdles debut.
1 from 27 on the Flat, and no win since May 2016; poor on all three hurdles starts, yet somehow still rated in excess of 100; impossible to enthuse over.
Ex-French racer who broke her duck over hurdles in style at Worcester (2m4f maiden) earlier this month; respected, but faces a very tricky looking rival in the shape of High Jinx.
Longstanding Flat maiden (0 from 16), and not achieved enough over hurdles so far in order to be considered in a race of this nature.
