7/2

Front-runner who is having first start since coming from Ireland. Was chasing when last seen and current hurdles mark doesn't appear lenient.

Finished last season with a pair of creditable efforts in better races and was entitled to need her come back run at Ascot last month. If deriving benefit from that she could be involved.

Work to do with Queen's Magic from Uttoxeter but seems to have improved when winning at Warwick and stamina assured at this trip and versatile regarding ground.

Running moderately over hurdles and on recent chasing debut, and has been withdrawn before on soft ground so plenty to prove at present.

Good ground win at Ffos Las over 2m in May and not disgraced under penalty only run since. Handicap debut now and testing underfoot conditions are an unknown.

Sprang a 40/1 shock a year ago at Towcester but disappointing since and isn't the easiest to predict. Claiming jockey has won on her before.

Disappointing of late including in testing conditions and hard to know where we stand with her at the moment though trip is fine.

Lightly raced and relishes these conditions. Entitled to come on for her comeback run and looks a player under jockey who always rides her.

16/1

Looked a decent prospect with a pair of wins in 2016 but pulled up sharply when going wrong when last seen in March 2017. Fitness to prove on first run since switching yards.

Betting

Forecast

Queen's Magic (7/2), The Kings Baby (7/2), Waiheke (9/2), Papagana (11/2), Jubilympics (6/1), Secret Door (7/1), Maebh (7/1), Big Penny (9/1), Miss Tongabezi (14/1), Zara Hope (16/1)

Verdict

WALHEKE has room for improvement and with her comeback run under her belt, can regain the winning thread. Maebh and Jubilympics look the chief threats in an ordinary race for the grade.
  1. Waiheke
  2. Maebh
  3. Jubilympics
