0-6 so far under rules, having won an Irish point. Has failed to complete in her last two, but was going better last time when hampered and unseating at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy). More needed, but not written off.
Has failed to make any impact so far, although her recent Aintree run was a step in the right direction. Initial mark still looks stiff, taking her form at face value, so more needed on handicap debut.
Both her wins have been on a sound surface. Was going well when falling at the last at Southwell (heavy) last time. Was staying on there over 1m7½f, so this longer trip should suit. Claims from this mark if none the worse for her fall.
Mudlark who is back on a mark 4lb lower than when last winning over a similar trip at Plumpton in March 2018. Unable to match that effort since. Respectable return run at Fontwell last month should have her ready to get involved here.
C&D winner who has also won a chase here over 3m1½f on heavy. Ran well when 5L second on her reappearance here over fences (3m, soft) last week. Can't rule her out if she can transfer that form back to hurdles.
0-8, and he best effort came on good ground. Yet to race on ground slower than good to soft, so has a bit to prove on heavy, but not written off if she handles it.
Scored here over 3m (soft) last time out, when she appeared to have more up her sleeve than the official margin suggested. Up 10lb for that, however, and back in trip, so she still has a bit to prove on these terms.
4lb higher than her sole success, which came in a class 5 Stratford novices' handicap hurdle (2m6f, good) in June. Has been nudged back up a couple of times after her last two good efforts. Handles heavy and should be very competitive.
Has failed to win in eight points and four races under rules, and is impossible to fancy even in this field. Blinkers fitted for the first time.
