- Equestrianprojects For Fencing Mares' Handicap Chase (Class 3)
- 2m 4f 194y, Good to Firm (Good in places)
- 5 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Useful over hurdles but already looks like making into an even better chaser, easy winner at Hexham (well backed) and 7lb rise for that is fair. Cheekpieces back on and with trip and ground both fine, no reason for her not to run her race.
Won a two-runner event at Newton Abbot, rider nicking a 2l lead at the start and never looking likely to relinquish it. Jumped well in the main there, but will face competition for the lead today and may need to pull out a bit more.
Model of consistency throughout the spring and only beaten a length in Cheltenham's Listed Mares chase in April. May well have needed her comeback run at Uttoxeter last month but does need to leave that disappointment well behind now.
Showed the benefit of her wind surgery to score easily at Bangor last time out, defeating a well-backed favourite and the front two well clear. Form looks very solid so 9lb rise is justified, drop back in trip no issue, and she looks a major player.
Won a couple of chases in the summer (both over shorter) and put in a decent enough effort when runner-up at Newton Abbot, but faces stronger opposition here and this trip asks a new question too. Others make more appeal.

Atlanta Ablaze (15/8), Rebel Yeats (3/1), King's Reste (9/2), On Demand (5/1), The Bay Birch (13/2)
