13:15 Ludlow Thu 14 November 2019
Second in both her bumper starts, both on good ground and on both occasions looking in need of a little further; nevertheless, has chances here for a yard going well if she can translate that ability over hurdles.
Four starts in bumpers last year, didn't really progress and final start was a big disappointment; early days yet though and possible a break has freshened her up, so could do better this term.
Placed all four times in bumpers last year without really showing a lot of progression at the same time, best effort coming when second at Warwick last November; probably needs to settle better but has chances if doing so.
Winner of two of her three starts in the French provinces last year, now joined Philip Hobbs; form of those wins doesn't amount to that much, but is related to plenty of winners and given connections, has to be respected.
Winner of both of her bumpers last year, including on debut here at Ludlow in January; solid enough effort on hurdles debut when fourth at Cheltenham last month and should come on for that, so chance very much respected.
Didn't show a lot in two bumpers last year but a different story now trying hurdles, far from disgraced either start and looks to be going the right way; meets some potentially hot company here but hard to discount completely.
Placed in a couple of bumpers but not shown an awful lot in two hurdles starts to date; needs this for a handicap mark where she may be more competitive. Drop back in trip probably not ideal today either.
Winner of two Irish bumpers last year before a change of yard and then thrown in at the deep end in a Grade 2 bumper at Aintree, where she was well beaten; has scope and should do better this year, worth a look in the market for support.
Has plenty of scope about her and should make a good hurdler, bit disappointing on hurdles debut at Southwell back in June but given a break since and it will be a disappointment if that's as good as she is.
