Filly with a dirt pedigree who seemed to be getting the hang of things last time. Drops in distance and a hood fitted this time.
Has made a modest start to her handicapping career and the aids go on this time. Looks less open to improvement than many in this.
Won a seller on last start for Richard Hughes and ran to a similar level on first two starts for this yard. Not as good last time and has improvement to find on her best efforts.
Son of Hat Trick bought for £82,000 at the breeze-up sales. No show in three novice events, but more possible on second run following wind surgery and a modest opening mark.
Landed a slowly run race at Kempton in August and form has been mixed since. Drawn widest of all and others have stronger claims.
Doubts her close fifth at Chelmsford is reliable form given her two runs since. Nevertheless, her initial mark is undemanding and she might improve for the longer trip.
Well beaten on his first four starts but produced a better effort in selling company at Lingfield last time. Nevertheless, weighted to turn the tables on Um Shama.
No signs of progress in four runs including her handicap debut over Christmas. Stepping up to a mile with plenty to find.
Has shown nothing so far and, although this looks a more suitable trip, the hood needs to yield significant improvement.
Her two best runs have come around here and she is better drawn than last time when the steady pace would not have helped.
Produced a career best at Newcastle on this surface before failing to justify favouritism at Southwell. Possible to overlook that run and give her a chance here off a reduced mark.
Well beaten on all three starts in Ireland and makes his handicap debut for a new handler. Impossible to recommend on what he has done.
