1
511-12OR: 105C

Made a winning hurdles debut over C&D in November (beat West Coast Lass by a neck) and was in contention when falling at the second last in handicap company on New Years Day; expect her to race prominently.

611-11OR: 104

Stayed on well to score at odds of 20/1 on stable/hurdles debut in a 2m maiden at Ayr (good) in May 2018; modest since, albeit is virtually untested in handicap company; tongue-tie applied on first start for 272-days.

411-4OR: 98CD

Off the mark at the sixth attempt over hurdles when beating Splash The Cash by 2¼L (over C&D) for in-form rider Conor O'Farrell; must be strongly considered after just a 4lb rise in the weights.

611-2OR: 95

Well beaten on all three starts for this trainer having joined the yard for a mere £800 in December 2018 (formerly with Charlie Longsdon); impossible to enthuse over despite the presence of newly-applied cheekpieces.

911-1OR: 94C

Musselburgh bumper winner for Stuart Crawford in November 2014 (then sold for £35,000); pulled up on both starts since returning from a mammoth absence (has broken blood vessels); a completion is surely the sole objective in added tongue-tie.

810-0OR: 74

On paper, she rates as a horse with a limited level of ability (a seven-race maiden). However, she's almost certain to have needed both of her recent starts (on return from a near three-year absence); overall this isn't a taxing contest.

Betting

Forecast

Frame Rate (11/8), Iconic Belle (2/1), Shankill Castle (6/1), Fairlee Grace (9/1), Im Too Generous (12/1), Braddan Head (33/1)

Verdict

Those towards the lower end of the handicap make precious little appeal, so it'll pay to focus upon the trio of Iconic Belle, Shankill Castle and the recent C&D scorer FRAME RATE. With Conor O'Farrell continuing to boot home a steady stream of winners, and just a 4lb rise in the weights to contend with for winning here 12-days ago, the solution to this 'puzzle' wouldn't exactly appear to be the most challenging of assignments.
