Winner at Ludlow on debut and then ran at least as well under a penalty at Ascot last time, already looking in need of further. Never easy to win these race sunder penalises but respected all the same.
Sent off big prices both starts and shown next to nothing. Easy enough to pass over here.
Looks in need of both time and more of a trip on what she's shown in two starts so far, and hard to fancy here.
Half-sister to useful novice hurdler Dickie Diver, and dam well related too. Yard not really known for first time out winners though, so may be best watched today.
Tailed off on only start at Newbury, looking short of pace, and has no realistic chance on that here.
Half-sister to 2m5f hurdle winner Just A Feeling, dam related to some good staying chase types and likely we won't see the best of her until getting more of a trip, but yard respected in these events.
Makes only limited appeal on pedigree and yard are 0-12 in bumpers last five seasons, so easy enough to look elsewhere for the winner.
Some appeal on pedigree, being a half-sister to multiple hurdle/chase winner Foundry Square, and bred to make a chaser in time. Good jockey booking and worth a look in the market.
Third runner in this from the Neil Mulholland yard, won't see the best of her until getting more of a trip and some obstacles, but market can guide as to her chance in relation to her stablemates.
Point-to-point winner in January, but it was only a modest affair and yard rarely have runners in this sphere. Others preferred.
Last of 14 on debut at Ascot and first time tongue tie here needs to make a massive difference.
Related to a few winners but yard just 1-9 in bumpers here last five years and on that, others make a bit more appeal.
Half-sister to useful hurdler The Saint James, and yard 1-8 in bumpers here last five years, so is at least worth a glance in the market for any support.
Tailed off both starts in bumpers so far and looks of limited ability already. Not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.
Decent pedigree, dam an unraced sister to the useful 2m4f-3m hurdle winner Whisky Yankee, yard among the winners and are 3-12 with their bumper runners here last five years. More interesting than most.
