Bred to be a chaser and showed improved form to get off the mark on her first try over the larger obstacles before disappointing subsequently. Managed to head back in the right direction last time; repeat of that run makes her a player.

This will be his first start over fences for this yard/under Rules (1-1 in point-to-points); showed little over hurdles so far (0-9). Off a career-low mark now but needs to show more zip/spark given this test.

Had shown nothing over hurdles but took a step forward on his chasing debut from a basement mark when second at Ludlow (2m4f). Hasn't shown anything in two runs since including when fifth at Plumpton yesterday; more needed.

Back to form from out of the blue when winning at Bangor in October (headgear back on); given a chance by the handicapper. Given his profile no surprise he's not been able to back up that run in two subsequent starts; struggled badly last time out.

Made very little impact under Rules so far; 0-3 in Irish point-to-points (only completed once). Now given a try over fences in handicaps off a lowly mark (never ran in handicaps over hurdles); had wind surgery.

Very long-standing maiden who has eased down the weights and been prominent in the market on several occasions without taking advantage. Expensive to follow the headgear worn last time is now removed; remains an unsafe proposition.

Betting

Forecast

Lady Master (13/8), Black Anthem (3/1), Western Morning (5/1), Cnoc Sion (6/1), Muilean Na Madog (6/1), Arboretum (25/1), Clondaw Robin (33/1)

Verdict

Hard to find a solid proposition with most of these having shown little of late. LADY MASTER is the pick in the hope that she can return to the form she showed on her chasing debut at Wetherby; a repeat of that would be good enough here. Cnoc Sion would need to return to his Bangor form to be in with a chance but he can’t be written off in a weak heat like this. Western Morning has at least won a point-to-point and this sphere may well show him in a better light, he’s not quite a forlorn hope. Muilean Na Madog is another who needs to repeat previous form his Ludlow second giving him a chance if he turns up after running at Plumpton on Wednesday.
