411-10OR: 125

Built on promise of first two starts over hurdles when winning a 16-runner Fairyhouse maiden. Fourth last time out behind subsequent Festival 1-2 now reads extremely well and suspect she's dangerously well handicapped; makes plenty of appeal.

Doncaster maiden winner/Listed second flopped behind Miranda two starts back as favourite before showing a bit more at Catterick latest. First handicap here but not sure this mark is generous.

411-4OR: 119

Although she is a maiden of 11 races she has two pieces of form at Cork that catch the eye. A fourth of 23 (Havingagoodtime behind) and sixth of 22 behind smart Fakir D'Oudairies. Disappointing twice since but not ruled out.

411-1OR: 116

Ex-Irish trained filly belatedly gained first hurdle success when winning a three-runner Market Rasen maiden over 2m4½f latest. This will be an altogether tougher test.

411-1OR: 116

Fontwell winner returned to form after twice being set tough tasks when third of 14 at Newbury (2m3f) latest on her handicap bow. Drop to bare 2m should suit even better and expectant of a bold bid.

75-rated Carlisle flat winner got off the mark at the second time of asking over hurdles at Huntingdon before finishing midfield latest at Stratford. This looks a tough ask on handicap debut.

410-7OR: 108

17-race maiden (five over hurdles) showed she ought to be in the winner's enclosure soon enough when third of seven at Naas two starts back. No-show on the level next but back over hurdles she has a squeak here.

410-3OR: 104

71-rated Flat maiden achieved little in first three over hurdles but left that form behind latest with a s respectable 2¾L fourth of eight at Huntingdon. Now goes handicapping and potentially can improve further.

410-0OR: 100

Ordinary Flat maiden but placed in two of her three hurdle races to date although beaten over 20L in most recent third. Blinkers tried now but this a tall order for handicap bow.

410-0OR: 100

Beaten 32L behind Miranda on hurdles bow and well behind Yamuna River next. Midfield effort at Ludlow latest a slight improvement but not enough to recommend her here.

Betting

Forecast

Havingagoodtime (7/2), Lady Camelot (4/1), Pilgrim Soul (9/2), Tazka (5/1), Miss Mumtaz (9/1), Via Delle Volte (10/1), So Enjoy (16/1), Yamuna River (20/1), Colour Me In (40/1), Emily Webb (66/1), Miranda (SP)

Verdict

All three Irish raiders here make the shortlist but HAVINGAGOODTIME makes a really compelling case for the excellent De Bromhead-Blackmore combination after finishing fourth last time out behind Band Of Outlaws who won easily at the Festival here; the third that day was second in the same Festival handicap further boosting the form. Tazka bounced right back to form when switched to a handicap last time out putting her firmly in the mix and Colour Me In could easily do the same.
