512-4OR: 107
9/2

Has shown some promise, though both her better runs involved some cut in the ground. Looks to be starting on a reasonably fair mark, so if she handles this quicker ground, she could go close.

611-12OR: 101D
4/1

Won a Sligo maiden hurdle in August (2m, good). Has looked a bit harshly treated by the assessor on her first couple of starts for this trainer, and a 1lb drop suggests this will again be tough.

511-11OR: 100D
9/2

In good form under both codes of late, and scored at Hexham (2m, good) last time out. Up 6lb for that, but next home was the favourite, followed by 17L to the third, so it is probably solid. Should again go well.

0-7 over hurdles, and well held from this mark over C&D on good to firm last time. Best form has been on softer ground. Watch.

711-3OR: 92
6/1

Placed in 7-16 hurdles but remains a maiden. CV suggests she should be very competitive from this mark, and conditions are no problem, but she does have to find a bit more than on recent performances. Each-way claims.

Showed a bit of promise in a Sedgefield bumper in April, but it has been mostly downhill since. Can only watch.

610-6OR: 81
6/1

Was beaten just 1L at 100-1 at Warwick (2m3f) in September, but well held both starts since and hard to know if dropping back to the minimum trip is the way forward.

Betting

Forecast

Dyliev (10/3), Cock A Doodle Doo (4/1), Little Pippin (9/2), Annie Bonny (9/2), Katebird (11/2), Chilli Romance (6/1), Celer Et Audax (6/1), Yalla Habibti (33/1)

Verdict

Annie Bonny looks to have been treated reasonably fairly on her handicap debut and could have a big say from this mark, but the suggestion is LITTLE PIPPIN, whose Hexham form looks decent in context, and and she could defy a 6lb rise. Chilli Romance is entitled to respect, while in weak race an eye should be kept on the market for potential improvers, with Katebird and Cock A Doodle Doo two to note.
