612-1OR: 122
15/2

Won at Market Rasen a year ago but lost her way in the spring. Took a heavy fall at Wincanton on Saturday, and may need this to boost her confidence.

4/1

Improved effort when winning a mares handicap at Market Rasen (by ¾ length from Longhousesignora) in February, and matched that form when second to a useful sort at Haydock next time. Yard in form ahead of this return, and not taken lightly.

Ran badly after a break in September but previous second of 12 to Included in mares handicap at Aintree in May would put her in the picture, and she clearly wasn't 100% last time.

Won at Huntingdon in March, and possibly just needed the outing when a respectable fourth of 11 to Lock's Corner in handicap at same course last month. One to consider with that under her belt.

11/4

Dropped markedly in the weights before winning at Warwick in September, and defied the handicapper to follow up at Hereford last month. Still fairly handicapped on her best form, and her rider is excellent value for his claim.

Won at Plumpton last September, but form has taken a downturn subsequently, and fared no better returning from a break at Fontwell last month. May have needed that, but hard to fancy in any case.

710-6OR: 99
12/1

Has been running just respectably in handicaps, but handicapper relenting, and she offered a bit more when third of 5 to Borak over 2m here last time. Must show she can build on that.

Scored over 2¾m at Ffos Las in April. Fell on return to action in September, but bounced back when third of 11 to Runasimi River in mares event at Hereford last time. Claims if stepping up even a little on that form.

Betting

Forecast

Runasimi River (11/4), Mac Bella (4/1), Viva Vittoria (4/1), Mabela (5/1), Outofthisworld (15/2), Sid Hoodie (8/1), Solstalla (12/1), Floral Bouquet (12/1), Sixties Secret (20/1)

Verdict

RUNASIMI RIVER is not certain to confirm recent Hereford form with Mac Bella on revised terms, but she remains capable of better based on her best efforts, and with Ben Jones continuing to impress, can complete the hat-trick. Mabela should derive some benefit from a recent run at Huntingdon, and also enters the reckoning.
