511-12OR: 99BF
9/2

Winner in France and has shown enough in maiden/novice hurdles for new yard to merit a close look now switched to handicapping. Strong market position would be noted.

811-12OR: 99
3/1

Won at Leicester late last year over this sort of trip and has been in good form since returning to action, runner-up in each of last three starts at Stratford and here. Gets on well with claiming rider and should go well again.

Maiden on the Flat though showed some promise in placed efforts at modest level. Yet to show much in pair of novice hurdle starts, now goes handicapping with improvement to find.

811-2OR: 89CD
8/1

Won three novice hurdles in 2017 but lost way since. Underwhelming in three starts this year, latest when pulled up at Stratford after a wind operation (made running). First-time blinkers added, remains opposable.

511-1OR: 88
10/1

Outsider of four in last month's handicap bow at Ffos Las over 2m and was well held third of three that got around intact. Entitled to be fitter for that run, but needs a large step forward on what she has shown to date.

610-12OR: 85
10/1

Has shown promise in novice company but no threat in a C&D handicap last month and needs the new headgear to bring about a chance in fortune as such.

410-10OR: 84
20/1

0-3 over timber and beaten wide margins each time. Another hefty defeat on the Flat at Bath last month and will need dramatic improvement now handicapping in this sphere to get competitive.

610-9OR: 82
33/1

Failed to beat a rival in four starts last year in bumper/novice hurdles. Not unfancied for seasonal return/handicap bow at Ffos Las in May and cards yet to be played when she fell four out. Watch betting.

710-7OR: 80

Yet to show anything like the form needed to win even an event like this in 10 hurdles starts. Broke a blood vessel here last month. Big ask on form.

310-6OR: 98
3/1

Has tended to give herself an awful lot of work from the rear in her two starts. Could do with showing more interest early on and will be a threat when she does. Handicap bow, watch betting.

710-6OR: 79
16/1

Beaten out of sight in three handicap since May, now unplaced in seven starts over timber and first-time blinkers (retained) didn't bring about improvement at Stratford (2m6f, good) last time.

Forecast

Chilli Romance (3/1), Pola Chance (3/1), Evita Du Mesnil (9/2), Foxy Act (8/1), Floral Queen (10/1), Line Of Beauty (10/1), Binn Boru (10/1), Minnie Escape (16/1), False Getaway (16/1), Lyn's Secret (20/1), Chica Rapida (33/1), Ask Jilly (33/1), Bit Spicy (100/1)

Verdict

The chances are something must improve on handicap debut to land this, so any market moves for Evita Du Mesnil, Pola Chance or Line Of Beauty would need noting. The standard though is set by CHILLI ROMANCE and she wouldn't be scoring out of turn, after some good efforts this year under Conor Brace. This might be her day, though she is vulnerable to an improver.
  1. Chilli Romance
