Plumpton novice winner over this trip weakened into eighth of nine in a subsequent handicap at Uttoxeter over 2m7½f. Maybe this trip will suit better but others appeal more.
Grade Two bumper second left midfield hurdling debut well behind her when a comfortable scorer at Fontwell last time. Extra 1½f here can only be seen as a positive so highly respected despite penalty.
Ffos Las maiden winner came to grief the next twice before showing her worth latest with a good second at Exeter. Should make a bold bid providing jumping holds up.
Second in a 2m5f Ludlow contest on debut over hurdles bodes well for the future and this former point-to-point scorer should be capable of improving and making presence felt here.
Showed ability without winning in bumpers but was tailed off on hurdles debut at Taunton. In good hands to improve but likely this come too soon.
Point-to-point winner made no impression in four races under rules including three over hurdles. Pulled up latest and hard to fancy.
Winner of her lone bumper at Southwell back in June. Runner-up won twice since so form looks solid and has to be of major interest given trainer's unparalleled record with novice hurdlers.
Point-to-point winner looks set to win plenty of races bases on her two starts under rules, a third at Plumpton and fourth at Lingfield but this every bit as tough if not more so therefore she is of just place appeal.
