Now 2-3 for this yard, scoring in good style last month at Doncaster (2m½f, good). Frontrunner, likely to give another sound account, though might not want to see any easing in the ground
Won Navan maiden hurdle November 2017 prior to wind surgery then joining current handler. Has shaped well in four runs in Britain; though no match for Its All A Lark last time (11L third). Better off on these terms, at least.
Shown plenty in three starts over timber, including handicap debut over 3m at Ludlow in February. Runs off the same mark here, drop in trip liable to suit and worth a second look.
Showed improved form when opening account in 2m Catterick mares' novice hurdle on New Year's Day, handicap debut since was a source of disappointment at Kempton and likely best watched on that showing.
66-1 chance on debut for this trainer at Chepstow (2m, good to soft) after a layoff and failed to beat a rival home. Undergone wind surgery since and chance on best of form in Ireland, should she be able to recapture that.
Twice finished second this season at Kempton and Plumpton, ran sound race at Warwick (2m, good) when beaten less than 2L earlier in the week. Quick turnaround and is 4lb wrong on these terms.
