- Betway Cosmic Case Mares' Novices' Hurdle (NHMOPS Bonus Race) (Class 4)
- 1m 7f 124y,
- 4 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Made all to win by 35L over 2m4f on good ground here earlier this month. Likely to prove hard to beat under a penalty dropping back in distance.
Placed twice on the Flat but well beaten in both starts over hurdles and probably best watched in this contest.
Useful performer on the Flat for Michael Bell and ran well when 17L third over an extended 1m7f at Catterick (good-to-soft) on hurdling and stable debut last month. Hood tried for the first time.
Finished runner-up three times over hurdles including when beaten a neck over C&D in November. Struggled on handicap debut last time out and interesting on her return to novice company.
