14/1

Not seen over hurdles since second in this race last year but has performed well on the Flat and won over fences last month to prove all the ability is till there though this looks a slightly hotter renewal.

Spent last season over fences but never really convinced in that sphere and no surprise connections have gone back to the smaller obstacles. Was progressing well when last seen over hurdles and interesting here with ground/trip to suit.

Two wins at shorter last term but this trip should be within her range and tongue tie now added after running below par when tried over fences last time. Should be happier now back over smaller obstacles.

11/4

Two wins in minor company last term and better efforts when runner up in Listed events. Has had wind operation over the summer and this is likely to have been the target so fitness should be fine and could take plenty of beating.

Will be happier back over hurdles having lost her way over fences but 12 lb higher than Haydock win in April so needs to bounce right back to very best to play a leading part.

510-12OR: 126BF
11/1

Won at Newton Abbot but fortunate to follow up when "winner" disqualified when jockey weighed in light on return there and beaten by 25/1 at Fontwell last time. Now tackling 4f longer than tries before but it needs to bring about improvement.

Deservedly off the mark at this trip in May at Newton Abbot on last start for Alan King. Since sold for £42,000 but 13lb higher than when second in last handicap run in March so this demands more.

Took well to hurdles last season with pair of wins but well beaten when trying this trip at Newbury so does have stamina to prove on this comeback run.

Rare poor run on Ludlow comeback but form book suggests that may have been needed as usually very consistent and should be fitter now though this hotter than her normal grade.

Won at Market Rasen a year ago but lost her way in the spring. May be best caught fresh though even her very best form needs improving on.

Much improved this season with pair of wins from the front at Market Rasen where this trip brought about more improvement last time. More needed and this better contest should reveal more.

Finally off the mark over this trip at Warwick but that was a moderate event and this requires plenty of progress.

Game effort to win at Warwick on comeback and not disgraced when third to Organdi (reopposes here) at Ludlow but best form is on a sound surface and any rain would be against her.

Consistent hurdler at her peak but has clearly had her problems as appearances are few and far between these days and starts off for new yard today.

Betting

Forecast

Danse Idol (11/4), Misty Bloom (9/2), Aimee De Sivola (8/1), Organdi (8/1), Midnightreferendum (17/2), Deputy's Oscar (11/1), Empreinte Reconce (11/1), Sixty's Belle (12/1), Outofthisworld (12/1), Litterale Ci (14/1), Duhallow Gesture (16/1), Kalahari Queen (16/1), Inessa (16/1), Midnight Sapphire (66/1), Kentford Heiress (66/1)

Verdict

DANSE IDOL'S only defeats last season were in Listed or grade 2 company and it would be no surprise if she proved to be a cut above these rivals and is a confident selection for her top handler. Kalahari Queen didn't always convince over fences but appeals back over the smaller obstacles and could run a big race at a double figure price while Duhallow Gesture could prove best of the rest.
