Fifth at Taunton on each of her last two outings and should win a race in due course, but this looks far from easy and might again find a few too good.
Shirocco mare, full sister to a decent winning hurdle. Dam won over hurdles and fences in France. Weakened quickly from 3 out on debut at Southwell but should be better for the experience and an improved effort is quite possible for shrewd yard.
Ran away with Irish mares point-to-point in December and subsequently purchased for £62,000 to join current yard. Easy to back on Rules bow at Fontwell but led until weakening last 150 yards. Open to improvement.
Rail Link mare out of winning Fibresand miler. Showed little on debut at Huntingdon last month when tailed off last of eight. Hard to enthuse over on that evidence.
Malinas filly, half-sister to winning bumper performer. Cost £5,800. Yard in good form at present and have plenty of winners here so worth a market check ahead of her racecourse debut.
Network filly whose dam won at up to 3m and is half-sister to no less a horse than the great Sprinter Sacre. Yard has impressive 32% strike rate here so is definitely worth considering despite modest show when well beaten on debut at Catterick.
Schiaparelli filly whose dam failed to trouble the judge during her racecourse career. Yard having fairly quiet time of late and are 0-12 at this track.
Nicely related daughter of Milan. Dam won 2m hurdle. Yard has tremendous 38% winning strike rate here and are always respected to every chance she will feature prominently in the betting.
By German sire September Storm out of an unraced Irish mare. Good yard well capable of having one ready first time so worth a check in the market to determine how much confidence lies behind her racecourse bow.
