Has not been in red hot form so far this term, but is now back on the same mark as her last win, at Cheltenham (2m1f, soft) 13-months ago. Interesting over slightly further and with 5lb claimed.
Triple hurdles winner at around 2m on testing ground in the 2015-16 season. Form then tailed off, and now returns after a two-year absence. Back on a handy mark. Stable can ready them to win after a layoff, so the market should guide.
2-21 over hurdles, both wins on testing ground (stays 2m7f). Handicapper looks to have caught up with her of late, after a good autumn, so more needed from this mark.
Won a Navan maiden hurdle (2m, soft/heavy) in November 2017. Had wind surgery prior to debut for this stable and has run with credit in defeat on both starts this season. Handicapper not yet cutting her any slack, but has to be respected.
Scored over hurdles at Wincanton (2m5½f, heavy) last February and went on to be placed in a Newbury Grade 2 in March. Best effort was when less than 3L second at Sandown last month, from this mark. Below par latest, but enters calculations.
Dual French bumper winner who made a promising debut for this trainer at Lingfield in November, and improved on that to win at Exeter (2m2½f, heavy) last time. Initial mark looks fair. Serious player.
Has her first rules run away from Ludlow this time, and was a 7L winner of a Class 4 event there (2m5f, good) in November. Held from 1lb higher, after a 10lb hike last time, so plenty more needed now.
Improved a bit on previous efforts when an 8L fourth at Ascot (2m7½f, soft) last time. Could get involved here from the same mark.
Won a novices' handicap at Southwell (3m, good) last May, when 7lb lower. Well held in novices' company last twice, so has a bit to find now back in handicap company from this mark.
