- Join The Coral Champions Club For Free Mares' Handicap Chase (Class 4)
- 2m 7f 131y, Good (Good to Soft in places)
- 9 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Second attempt over fences when an 11-lengths second of 12 at Market Rasen in August. Runs off the same mark and handles cut in the ground.
Beaten a long way on last two starts over fences and handicapper is starting to relent. Has a bit to prove for the time being.
On the upgrade at end of last season, but was not at her best when last seen at Hexham in May. Has been given a break, handles cut and handicap mark is fair.
Not at her best in three runs this season and may be finding age catching up with her. Connections try cheekpieces in a bid to turn the tide.
Winning start over hurdles for this yard, but was well beaten on her chase debut. Needs to find more and softer ground is a concern.
No wins in four starts over fences, the last of which was in December, 2016. Has dropped to a lenient mark and would be of interest if strong in the betting.
Irish import who was having her first run for this stable when well beaten at Worcester last month. Plenty to prove off 3lb lower.
Good efforts on last two starts over fences, but handicapper has put her up a total of 8lb. Softening ground is a worry.
Stable companion of Micras and is another Irish import who needs to step up on her first run for the yard at Uttoxeter. Runs from 4lb out of the handicap.
