- Abacus Decorators Mares' Handicap Hurdle (Class 5)
- 2m 7f 70y,
- 10 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Had shown promise before coming good at Huntingdon last time out, finishing her race off better. Faces much different ground conditions here and 10lb rise looks plenty, but at least she's in form.
Well beaten most starts lately and now takes another drop in class (and the weights). Has no form to speak of on soft/heavy and hard to fancy.
Not beaten far last two starts and handles a bit of cut, but this ground is a new question to answer and the fact connections try new headgear here looks more in hope than confidence. Chance all the same.
Stuck to the task to finish fourth last time out but her efforts on soft/heavy leave plenty to be desired. Nicely enough weighted if she can handle it, but comes with risks.
Is at least proven on soft/heavy, having finished third on it at Exeter in March, and does come into this off the back of a wind operation and with a first-time tongue tie. Looks one of he more likely ones.
It was only a selling hurdle she finished second in at Cartmel last time but it did at least show she handles soft ground and that she comes into this in decent form, so she has to be considered in first-time cheekpieces.
Only beaten half a length at Cartmel last time out (good to soft) and it was in a better grade than this, so she's worth consideration dropping in class, but this ground does ask a new question of her.
Lightly raced and open to a bit of improvement but she'll need it on what she's shown so far, and she's unproven on the ground too.
Has plenty in her favour, not least the fact she's a C&D winner in heavy ground, but she's not one to fully trust and does need to show she's fit after not being seen out since February. Chance, but clearly risky.
Just got the better of Kildaven Spider at Cartmel last time and there's nothing between them at the revised weights here. Handles cut and would hold a chance if she's able to repeat that effort.
