- Download The At The Races iPad App Chase (Novices' Limited Handicap) (Class 4)
- 2m 4f 15y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Has won on the Flat and over hurdles (2m6f), but this will be her first experience of racing over fences; solid third at Cartmel last month (2m6f handicap hurdle); evidently fit and well, but most effective with some cut in the ground.
122-rated hurdler (three wins between 2m-2m3f); has limited experience of racing over fences following placed efforts at Newton Abbot and Worcester; today's longer trip is likely to prove in her favour; every chance.
Gave it a good go from the front on his rules chasing debut at Cartmel (2m5f) in June, when ultimately not quite strong enough for Souriyan (beaten 9L); similar tactics likely today at a track where he's finished runner-up at over hurdles.
Took advantage of a falling mark (with the hood applied) to spring a surprise at Bangor (2m1f+) in August; since produced a similar effort off 6lb higher at Worcester (third); stamina reserves unproven but respected nevertheless.
18-race maiden under rules (0-12 over fences), tailed-off at odds of 250/1 in a 3m Southwell novices chase latest, and a similar scenario looks likely today on these disadvantageous terms; no chance barring accidents.
