Fame And Glory mare, point-to-point winner in March and purchased for £45,000 in April. Runner-up on hurdles bow at Southwell (2m, good to soft; 12-1) recently (made running) and should be in the shake-up again.
French import, did as well as could be expected on debut for this yard at Stratford (2m2½f, good to soft; 9-2) when chasing home odds-on on jolly in Mares' Novices' Hurdle recently. Yard in sparkling form, player.
Consistent in bumpers, including soft-ground Catterick success in March. Well held last month in Southwell novice hurdle on debut for this yard, leaving plenty to work on.
Rip Van Winkle mare, lost her way on the Flat since winning a claimer at Winsor in autumn of 2017. Best watched on hurdles introduction unless market says different.
Early promise as a juvenile long forgotten now, showed very little on hurdles bow returning from 775-day absence at Southwell (2m, good to soft; 100-1) last month and hard to recommend.
Passing Glance filly, dam ran twice in bumpers, half-sister to very smart hurdler/top-class chaser Diamond Harry (plenty stamina in pedigree).
Won a Wincanton bumper in May over this sort of trip, an effort that was at odds with previous two starts in that code. 50-1 poke and pulled up on hurdles bow at Southwell (1m7½f, good to soft) since. Plenty to prove.
Not entirely without promise in her three starts (fell on second run) but this daughter of Black Sam Bellamy appears to lack a gear-change and perhaps will offer more when having stamina tested.
