710-12OR:
16/1

Showed some promise in three bumpers for Chris Gordon but completely tailed off and dead-last on lone start for this yard here over a year ago. Suspect she's had her problems but market can guide as to expectations here.

610-12OR: WS
7/2

Good ground bumper winner at Stratford in June but finished well beaten in a four runner novice hurdle subsequently and pulled up next. Off since November and had a wind-op in that time. Too early to write her off.

510-12OR:
10/1

Showed some ability when third in a Uttoxeter bumper last June but flopped next when well fancied at Worcester. Off for quite some time since and has time on her side so market may guide as to expectations today.

710-12OR:
33/1

Daughter of Black Sam Bellamy bumped into a useful sort when a well beaten ninth of 10 on her racecourse debut at Ludlow in March. This should prove a fair bit easier but massive step up needed.

610-12OR:
2/1

Placed bumper performer showed some potential in two hurdle races to date at Wetherby and Wincanton finishing fourth in both of them. This easier than either on form to date so expecting a bold bid.

11/8

Nine race maiden but not beaten far over hurdles the last twice. Good 4¼L fourth of 15 over C&D (good-to-soft) last time out highly respected here with a tongue tie tried for the first time. Also declared Ffos Las Sunday.

Betting

Forecast

Stephanie Sunshine (11/8), Lady Marwah (2/1), Forget Me Knot (7/2), Influential Lady (10/1), Barcalona (16/1), Kadasa (33/1)

Verdict

This looks a good bit easier than either of the two hurdle races contested by Lady Marwah so far and Michael Scudamore's mare has been found a really good opportunity to break her duck. That opportunity will be even better if dual-declared Stephanie Sunshine doesn't turn up as she rates the main danger after her fourth here last time out. Influential Lady maker her belated hurdles bow and merits respect.
