Maintained her excellent record first time out with a game victory at Warwick and the runner up has won since to give the form a solid look. 6lb rise demands more but should again run her race.
Beaten over hurdles last time but has won last three over fences including two here (second only other visit) and at top of his game, though wouldn't want too much more rain as good ground is his optimum.
Stiff tasks when below par at the spring festivals but solid form prior to that and this clearly his level. Versatile regarding ground and more to come at this trip.
Took quite well to fences last term winning at Uttoxeter, though found 3m2f too far when beaten in valuable Kelso event when last seen in the spring. Scope for more progress over fences for top yard.
Won a valuable chase at Uttoxeter in May and would have gone very close to following up but for falling on subsequent run. Four months absence to overcome but stable among the winners and mark still looks workable.
Benefited from the leaders going off too fast when ultimately hacking up at Huntingdon last time but this is a far stronger contest and 11lb rise demands more.
