Did lose a show when tailed off last of three when last seen in March but overall form leaves her plenty to find and first-time tongue-tie will need to have a dramatic effect.
Fetched £115,000 after winning a point-to-point in March. Has looked a staying prospect on both bumper starts this autumn and this longer trip very much in her favour now going hurdling. Top yard has taken this race twice in the last three years.
Has won a point-to-point and hurdles debut here was promising. Not as good at Uttoxeter on latest but this longer trip will be in her favour and too early to discount.
Has regressed in two runs since her bumper debut earlier in the year. Now steps up in trip going hurdling but others make more appeal.
Shaped with plenty of promise on bumper debut last month at Newbury when 13L sixth of 13. The winner that day has since followed up and she looks an interesting contender going hurdling now at a longer trip.
Promise without progressing in bumpers and it's been the same story over hurdles to date at various distances and likely that one or two of these will have more improvement than her.
Bumper winner at Warwick over a year ago and stepped up from hurdles debut when 12L second at Market Rasen last month at this trip. Stable having a good run at present and more to come with this better ground in her favour.
66/1 when stumbling and falling at halfway on bumper debut at Warwick. Now going hurdling having had a wind operation and probably best watched for now.
Sole finisher in point-to-point in April 2018 and then runner up. Long absence to overcome and presumably has had her problems so not hard to look elsewhere.
Point-to-point winner a year ago on good ground and ran well on heavy ground at Plumpton on second run over hurdles last time. That form has taken knocks from those in behind but more to come and should play a part.
Has shown a modicum of ability at huge odds in both runs over hurdles but handicaps will follow after this and they are likely to see her in a better light.
Has shown enough ability on both bumper starts six months apart to suggest she has a future now going hurdling and this longer trip looks sure to suit. Market should reveal more.
Her second at Huntingdon on hurdling debut is decent form but well below that when 15L behind Lunar Baby since when the heavy ground was very likely to blame. Entitled to do much better now back on a sound surface.
