15:50 Plumpton Mon 11 March 2019
From a stable going well of late she makes her handicap debut having confirmed her decent bumper form with a Market Rasen novice win in November. Both runs since have come on more testing ground (one in Listed grade); player making handicap debut.
Fairly useful handicapper; has yet to win a handicap (seven tries) and ran poorly last time (early blunder hardly helped). Has been tried over longer trips than this (failed to stay) but does need to brush up on her jumping which is holding her back.
Very much shaped as though she needed the run last time after having 9 months off. Generally travels well but has been lightly-raced since she scored in a Sandown handicap in December 2017 off 1lb lower; this run will reveal more.
Landed back-to-back novice hurdles straight after wind surgery but has been rather let down by her jumping since (one try over fences). Not seen to best effect when last seen (ridden patiently) in a Market Rasen handicap; work to do off this mark.
Her two handicap victories so far came consecutively in 2017, the second off the mark she competes off today. Form has been rather ragged since then (including over fences); ran her best race for a while last time; on a fair mark on her best form.
Yet to run in a handicap (makes her debut here) having won a bumper and offered some encouragement on her second hurdles start (looked suited by the trip). Face a stiff task last time in a Grade 2 and may yet do better in this sphere.
Held her form well in better company since winning a 0-100 contest at Fontwell in December. Gradually creeping up the handicap but looks able to cope with her mark; would be suited by a strong gallop at this trip; makes plenty of appeal.
Strong in the betting over a longer trip here last time after a sound effort at Wincanton the time before. Proving rather hard to win with as displayed by her last effort (caught close home; may have been played too soon); stiffer test here.
Two recent AW runs returning from 15 months off have shown nothing; finished last both times. Has won over hurdles but hard to see her getting involved here on the back of her last two efforts; others much preferred.
Modest form so far over hurdles and has hardly made a step forward since going handicapping. Took a heavy fall on her penultimate run but made little impression last time and faces a stiff task in this.
