12:50 Market Rasen Thu 6 December 2018
Came back from summer break to win a similar contest to this at Worcester, and ran at least as well at Fakenham next time. Below par effort at Southwell latest needs shaking off but conditions fine and even with the penalty, looks a player.
Moderate on the Flat and tailed off on hurdles debut at Ffos Las, an early mistake not helping his cause. No realistic chance here.
Moderate point-to-pointer, placed in four such events but yet to win one. Bred for the job though and has joined a shrewd yard, so may improve. Likely to find this too sharp a test all the same.
Excellent second to the useful Jersey Bean in a bumper on debut at Ascot last November but two subsequent starts haven't been to the same standard. Looked hard work at Bangor latest, but may have needed the run so could do better here.
Useful on the Flat and has already won one for this yard when coming good over 12f at Newbury in October (awarded race in stewards room). Has speed and if taking to hurdles then has chances for a yard that do well here.
Won a point-to-point at Garthorpe in the spring but two starts under Rules have revealed little so far, and she will be better off in handicaps after today.
