14:50 Market Rasen Thu 5 December 2019
Easy to back last time out on just her third start for this yard having previously been with Neil Mulholland. 10lb lower than her last winning mark but hard to fashion a case on her latest display (jumped poorly); best watched for now.
Could be given a chance were she to run to the level that she showed when second at Musselburgh on her handicap debut earlier in the year off a 4lb higher mark. Failed to live up to that standard, however, has something to prove here.
Twice a winner off higher marks for Neil King he's starting to look well handicapped for this yard having had just the two starts for them so far. Headgear (cheekpieces) worn last time are retained, looks the sort to keep an eye on in the market.
Stepped up on her reappearance run when taking second at Fakenham last time over 2m7f having run too free although the form isn't strong (beaten 26L). Still on a feasible mark if she consents to settle better although this looks tougher than last tim
Landed a gamble when returning from a break to take advantage of a much-reduced mark at Ayr in January. Below that level subsequently although her performance at Southwell in the summer saw her trending in the right direction; needs a strong gallop.
Remains with one standout effort on her Rules CV and even that's not really enough to get her into the mix here. Pulled up when last seen over hurdles in testing conditions at Hexham over 2m4f; not one to be overly interested in.
Not long with this yard he's been running fairly well over fences without ultimately looking totally convincing. Often given plenty to do as here last time over the larger obstacles; 2lb lower than that effort returning to hurdles he has to be noted.
Sole win came in a real stamina test at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft); went from the front off a lowly mark. Looks to be working her way back to that sort of performance (ran well last time); this test looks too sharp to see her really do herself justice.
Unexposed as a stayer and clearly going the right way this season building on a Fontwell second to score at Plumpton over 3m1f off a 4lb lower mark (just held on from a next time out winner). Should appreciate this test and have more to offer.
Poor handicap hurdler who usually saves his best form for Uttoxeter with two of his three wins coming at the Staffordshire venue. Well below form when last seen at Huntingdon; not one to approach with much enthusiasm.
