510-12OR:
50/1

Eight-race maiden on the Flat (rated 57); last appearance at Kempton in November 2017 (for Lucy Wadham); with new connections for hurdles debut.

610-12OR: 88
66/1

Demonstrated bits and pieces of form over hurdles in Ireland (strongest at 2m4f) for previous trainer Henry De Bromhead; reappears for a new trainer off a 169-day absence.

7/4

Raced keenly on hurdles debut at Ludlow (2m, good) but better held up off the pace next time at Exeter (2m1f, good to soft) when finishing 10½L third to Epatante; handles soft and this looks to be an ideal opportunity.

910-12OR:
20/1

Has witnessed precious little racing in recent years, but was running reasonably well until ducking out at the third last over C&D (mares' novices') in January; this mare couldn't be trusted implicitly.

710-12OR: D
1/2

Dual bumper scorer (including on heavy); found the minimum trip on the sharp side when outpaced behind an odds-on shot of Gordon Elliott's at Ayr latest; has scope to progress at a realistic level; chance.

510-12OR: D
33/1

Has achieved little of any significance since taking a 2m bumper on debut at this track in April 2018 (on Tapeta); difficult to envisage how she can be positively involved.

610-12OR:
28/1

Acquitted herself reasonably well in bumpers (without winning) throughout the course of 2017; appeared in need of the run when finishing last 14 on hurdles debut (80/1) at Ayr.

Betting

Forecast

Paper Promise (1/2), Darling Du Large (7/4), See The Sea (5/1), Missesgeejay (20/1), Western Lass (28/1), Summer Lightening (33/1), Bermondsey Belle (50/1), Biddy Be (66/1)

Verdict

A particularly modest opener, in which only a couple of the runners can be considered as realistic winners. Paper Promise will handle the soft ground and is open to a degree of improvement over hurdles (in her grade). However, the standout form-based choice is the Tom George-trained DARLING DU LARGE who settled much better over obstacles at Exeter, and can become just a second ever jumps winner at Newcastle for today's rider Jonathan Burke.
