16:30 Ayr Fri 12 April 2019
Was winning races for fun when last seen, ratting off a hat-trick with some bold front-running displays but not seen since September and handicapper is asking for more. Nevertheless, a big player if fit after her break.
Bit below par at Warwick last time but maybe the trip/soft ground against her there, so that best forgiven. Had previously looked on the up and should find conditions here more to her liking. Chances.
Won a couple of novice hurdles last summer, ran well in handicaps after and her close seventh in a competitive handicap at Cheltenham when last seen is worthwhile form. Should have more to offer this spring.
Has a decent record on these shores when brought over from Ireland, twice a winner this winter but they were both at shorter trips and on much softer ground than she'll encounter here. Others preferred.
Something of a mixed record over the past year, made favourite all five times and has won three of them but a poor effort at Ayr last time when better might have been expected. Needs to bounce back now.
Had every chance when falling three out at Ludlow latest, had run out a ready winner at Wetherby previously and these conditions clearly suit. Looks one to be interested in here, with improvement still likely.
Mark coming down a bit but that's down to some middling efforts this season and she was soon seen off at Plumpton last time. Tries a new trip, which may help, but she's a bit risky.
Winner of her last three starts, and her defeat of the useful Drinks Interval at Aintree looks all the better now. Not seen since last June but has won after a break, is a C&D winner, and must be taken seriously.
Improving mare that couldn't have done the job any easier at Musselburgh last time (although main rival fell), once again has her conditions but this is tougher, and handicapper now asks for more.
Winner here back in 2017, bit disappointing since but this step up might suit on breeding and she wasn't totally disgraced behind Hidden Dilemma when last seen. Lively one at a price.
Not improving and is finding winning difficult, ran a bit better than finishing position suggested at Fontwell latest but this trip an unknown and she needs to start progressing again before being considered.
