411-4OR:
50/1

Placed in a point-to-point before showing a fair amount of promise on her bumper debut. Failed to build on that last time but this Flat-bred filly may have more to offer now hurdling on a faster circuit.

Half-sister to 2m hurdles winner All Is Good. Has had wind surgery since beating only one home on bumper debut.

511-4OR:

Has shown modest ability in two bumpers and two low grade hurdles. Looks easy to oppose until proving her stamina.

511-4OR: BF
2/1

Justified market confidence on bumper debut and second in a much better race at Cheltenham. Returned to that venue for her hurdling debut when she was travelling well before coming down three out. Stable have hit form.

511-4OR: D
3/1

Landed a Warwick bumper on debut and not disgraced in better subsequently, although she was 8L behind Definitelyanoscar last time. Stable have had three winners from their last five runners.

411-4OR:
5/4

Half-sister to useful chaser Laganbank bought for £100,000 after winning a Ballyarthur point-to-point on desperate ground in the best time of the day. Doubtful this is enough of a test but she has joined a top yard that took this last year.

611-4OR:
100/1

Winner of a Point-to-Point at the second time of asking in December 2016 and subsequently purchased for £25,000. Has proved difficult to settle and likely to need this after 18 months off.

611-4OR:

Has achieved little so far and looks up against it in what may prove to be an above average mares maiden hurdle.

611-4OR:

£600 purchase has been tailed off on both starts which have come two years apart. Stable have gone 66 runners without a winner and doubtful she can end the drought.

411-4OR:

Half-sister to a couple of French hurdle winners. Signs of ability in a couple of point-to-point Flat races but not so much on rules debut.

511-4OR:

Runner-up in a point-to-point Flat race but a distant fourth on rules debut. Starts hurdling career having switched stables but highly tried here.

411-4OR:

A Gold Well filly out of an Overbury mare, she is from a good jumping family which includes the high-class Dublin Flyer. Only fifth of nine on bumper debut but she looked the one to take from the race. In form stable took this two years ago.

411-4OR:

Has run to a similar level in three bumpers wen achieving less than a couple of these. Makes hurdling debut with the advantage of a recent run but others look more likely contenders.

511-4OR:

Showed modest form in bumpers before finishing tailed off hurdling debut. Back from a five month break and facing a difficult task.

Multiplex half-sister to Positively Dylan who has won four races for this yard. Gets a generous allowance being a three-year-old and the market should be informative.

Betting

Forecast

Jillythejet (5/4), Definitelyanoscar (2/1), Diamond Gait (3/1), Cut And Run (20/1), Storm Goddess (25/1), Sixty's Belle (25/1), Sally Can't Wait (33/1), Astra Via (40/1), A Little Chaos (50/1), Royale Jonquille (80/1), Pot De Fleur (100/1), Blue Ballerina (100/1), Nellemani (100/1), Yalla Habibti (100/1), Lady Avery (100/1)

Verdict

Jillythejet is a well-bred filly representing a yard that took this last year with another hurdling debutante. However, her point-to-point victory came on testing ground on the demanding Ballyarthur circuit so there must be a doubt about the suitability of this trip on a track as fast as this. As a result DEFINITELYANOSCAR rates the pick having landed a gamble on debut and having travelled well until falling at Cheltenham on her hurdling debut. If none the worse for that mishap she can provide in form Harry Fry with another winner.
