- X L Joinery Mares' Novices' Hurdle (Class 4)
- 2m 167y,
- 8 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Sent off at 150-1 and ran accordingly when tailed off over C&D. Unable to complete in any of her four starts prior to that and this mare is likely to find things very tough once again.
French import who is a dual bumper scorer making her hurdles debut. Should be the one to beat for trainer/jockey pairing who are a formidable combination at this time of year. Very hard to oppose.
Pulled-up over 2m5f at this track on debut at the start of the month when sent off at 100/1. Others make far greater appeal and she is ruled out with confidence until she shows more enthusiasm.
Got off to an encouraging start when having first career start and finishing fourth at Wincanton (1m7f; good to firm). Likely to experience vastly different conditions today on hurdles debut but interesting to see how much she progresses from debut.
Ran quite a promising race for a 125/1 shot when third (beaten 18-length) over C&D behind a 1/5F. Should be able to run into a place once more if replicating that level of form, but must brush up on hurdling which was a weak point last time out.
Makes hurdles debut after three awfully modest efforts in bumpers. Tailed off on his last start at Worcester (2m; good) and very hard to be enthusiastic about. Best watched until offering more.
Made hurdles debut at Hexham (2m; good) recently when beaten a very long way. Would have to improve a bit upon that to figure in this race which is slightly weaker. Place claims at best.
Only had a couple of runs over hurdles but has been tailed off in both of them. Has also never ran on ground worse than good and she doesn't look to hold any sort of chance in this contest.
