Had been struggling in point-to-points and hunter chases prior to going close in a selling hurdle at Uttoxeter last month. Harder task back over fences and in a handicap here.
Solid effort at Fontwell two starts back but struggled at Uttoxeter next time having made some jumping errors. Tongue-tie added here and dropped a couple of pounds. Champion jockey keeps the faith and solid chance if bouncing back to form
Disappointing that she couldn't build on her good effort at Doncaster last time when stepping up in trip at Worcester. Still early days and likely to come good sooner rather than later.
Made a successful start over fences at Bangor (2m4½f, good) two starts back. Couldn't follow up back over hurdles last time. Raised 10lbs in the weights fo that first run over fences and steps up in trip but a leading contender all the same.
Hold up performer who has taken a liking to this track. Went close last time when getting headed late on. Nudged up 3lbs but likely to give his running once more.
Still early days over fences having only had two starts. Badly out of touch when last seen in May and has had a wind operation since then. Starting to look well treated now so bounce back to form is possible.
Off the mark at the 22nd attempt at Worcester nine days ago. Raised 7lbs for that success but did it in smooth style and every reason to believe she could go well again.
