611-6OR:
11/2

Made an immediate impact over hurdles when an 11-1 winner at Market Rasen (2m4f, good) in October. Has been given time before this return for more under a penalty. Improvement needed to defy that, but no reason why she can't find that.

611-6OR: 121D
5/2

Bumper winner who scored on her second start over hurdles at Fontwell (2m3f, soft) in December. Held under a penalty last time, when significantly below the level of form of her win, but claims if bouncing back.

66/1

7-1 but well beaten on debut in an Exeter bumper in December. Market suggests she could be better than that, and on her return from wind surgery, she looks worth noting in the market.

3/1

Listed mares' bumper winner at Market Rasen (heavy) 13-months ago, but yet to produce anything over hurdles to match that. However, clearly has some ability and shouldn't be too far away at the business end in this field.

511-0OR:
5/2

Improved for the switch to hurdles when showing some promise in a Chepstow maiden last month. Should be a fair bit more to come on that evidence and it would be no surprise to see her go very close.

611-0OR:
50/1

Not devoid of promise in her first to bumper runs, but below par last time. Half-sister to two jumps winners, so may be able to make progress now hurdling, but others make more compelling cases today.

611-0OR:
33/1

Went close on debut in a Warwick bumper last April, but has failed to sparkle in two starts since. Dam was a Listed winner over hurdles, so scope for improvement now switched to this discipline. Market check.

711-0OR:
9/1

Improved on some respectable bumper form when 33-1 and 10L fourth on her hurdles debut at Ludlow (2m5f, good) last month. Jumped right there, but any improvement on that effort would surely see her thereabouts this time.

611-0OR: WS

Won a Southwell bumper on her second start last April. Well beaten on hurdles debut at Exeter in November. Since has wind surgery and now wears tongue-tie. Improvement needed, but not totally written off.

66/1

Second foal. Dam 1m3f AW and 2m hurdle winner, out of US 1m1f/GB 1m2f winning sister to 1m Listed winner Gold Academy. Although trainer can ready a debut winner, this looks a tough assignment first up.

Betting

Forecast

Midnightreferendum (5/2), Fair Kate (5/2), Dissavril (3/1), L'chamise (11/2), Organdi (9/1), Sweet Adare (25/1), Moor Freedom (33/1), Jaunty Velocity (50/1), Timassini (66/1), Chetsford Water (66/1)

Verdict

There was plenty to like about the debut success by L'chamise in October, and being given time between her runs may end up paying dividends as she tries to defy a penalty. However, that is no easy task and FAIR KATE looked to be a mare with some potential on her more recent hurdles debut, so she may be capable of stepping up on that with a win this time. Organdi, Dissavril and Midnight Referendum are others to consider, while Chetsford Water looks well worth a market check after wind surgery.
