Five from 12 over hurdles for this yard before embarking on a chasing campaign this season which has resulted in three straight seconds. Fully effective at this trip and return to hurdles should suit but penalty leaves her vulnerable.
Won last two starts last season (2m7f and 3m) and after a promising reappearance third in a Kempton Listed race she returned to winning ways in a handicap there latest. Revised Official Rating puts her thereabouts here and clearly still improving.
Three time winner over hurdles, the latest coming first time out at Wincanton this season. Hung left latest blowing her chance in a Kempton Listed race but still managed second 1¾L ahead of Culture De Sivola. Big chance if keeping a straight line.
Three-time winner over fences including latest when fairly bolting up in a Mares only Listed handicap at Newbury. First hurdle start for over a year but form latest appeals plenty and that success remains trainer's only runner in UK this season.
Dual novice scorer last season has run two sound races this season finishing second here and third at Cheltenham latest behind the same rival. Up 2f from previous longest trip but looks likely to stay although has a bit to find at this level.
Heavy ground maiden winner last March. Unplaced in five races since and Grade Three sixth of seven latest leaves her with plenty to prove now at an even higher level.
