12:25 Fontwell Sun 17 November 2019
Produced best effort over jumps when second on seasonal return at Hexham (2m7½f, soft; 5-1) last month, just getting run out late on. Drop in trip should suit and big player if building on that showing.
Was returning from a 514-day absence when scoring last month at Fontwell (2m5½f, soft; 16-1), bumped up 5lb for that win but given 25 days to get over it and merits a place on any shortlist with Rex Dingle negating the extra weight.
Has started at 66-1 in all three novice hurdles so far and yet to finish within 30L of a winner; will need a sizeable step forward for the switch to handicaps.
26-race maiden across all codes, came closes over 2m2½f at Newton Abbot in May (second) but poor in three runs since and while back on same mark now; this trip may prove further than ideal.
Good effort when runner-up on her handicap debut over hurdles at Plumpton (2m4f, good) last winter but 0-6 over timber and was already in trouble when unseating on last month's comeback. Questions to be answered.
Runner-up in Worcester maiden hurdle (2m7f, good; 8-1) in September on first run after a wind operation; has struggled in two handicaps since and make little appeal despite sliding mark here.
Modest form in maiden/novice hurdles and beaten 46L in a handicap at Wincanton over this sort of trip last month on quick ground. Mare has plenty to prove at this juncture.
