Tries to protect her unbeaten record here having won an Irish point-to-point (10L) and then easily followed up at odds-on when winning a Worcester bumper by 5L. Won that impressively and looks sure to go close on hurdles debut.
Bumper winner on her debut who looked to have improved in her final bumper run after a break and some wind surgery. Offered something to work on from her hurdles debut when with Anthony Honeyball; now drops in trip for a new yard.
Cost 40,000 after easily winning an Irish point-to-point by 10L in March on her 2nd start in that sphere. Withdrawn on good ground at Uttoxeter when making her debut earlier this month she's joined a top-class yard; note in the market.
Hood now applied after she was pulled-up in a Taunton bumper on her debut back in April (2m, heavy). Only a cheap purchase and offered little there; expect the same story this time around.
One of the more experienced runners who has had some wind surgery since she was last seen and now sports a first-time tongue-tie also. Two third places at this course show that she has ability and better is expected although she may need further.
Well held in her only bumper she showed some aptitude for hurdling on her debut in this sphere. This looks too tough for her though and she'll do better with a mark in handicaps further down the line.
Debutante from a yard that are always of interest with this type; she beat her only rival when making all in point-to-point (came home alone) trained by the trainer's wife for that win. Now under Rules and interesting to see what she can do.
Debut form in bumpers looked sound and she built on that when dead-heating in a Southwell event in the same sphere in April (enjoyed a soft lead). A penalty appeared to hold her back on her return; now makes her hurdles debut off level weights.
Has failed to show that much in two bumpers the 2nd of which came around this course. Looks to have a very difficult task on her hurdling debut and others appeal far more.
