811-2OR: 124
12/1

1-17 over fences, having scored over 2m5f (good) when trained in Ireland. Produced a career-best on debut for this trainer in Aintree Mares Listed chase last month. Well held at Doncaster last time, however, and needs improvement to win this.

1011-2OR: 96DWS
66/1

Multiple hurdle winner at up to 2m2½f, on a variety of ground. However, arrives out of form and with plenty to find on these terms. Is 0-7 over fences and sports a tongue-tie on her first run after wind surgery.

711-2OR: 140D
13/8

Very useful at her best as a hurdler and scored over fences at her second attempt, when winning a beginners' contest at Exeter (2m1½f, good) in October. Another good effort over hurdles last time and looks a contender again.

611-2OR: 118CD
16/1

Ex-Joseph O'Brien inmate who was back to form with a vengeance over C&D last time, her third run for this trainer. Was in control from a long way out (front pair were 4L clear), so this tilt at black type may not be as fanciful as may first appear.

711-2OR: 130CD
5/2

Couldn't win over hurdles, but has four successes to her name as a chaser, including in a class 2 event at Cheltenham last time (2m½f, soft). Bit to find with one or two opponents, but has to be taken seriously after that career-best.

911-2OR: 147
9/4

7-26 over fences and farmed mares' handicap chases in 2019, winning 4-5 at one stage. Not as good on her last two runs, and well held by Northern Beau at Cheltenham last time out, so a bit to prove, including over this short.

Betting

Forecast

Litterale Ci (13/8), The Bay Birch (9/4), Northern Beau (5/2), Holly Flight (12/1), Little Light (16/1), Hope's Wishes (66/1)

Verdict

The Bay Birch is clear of her field on these terms by comparison to if this were a handicap, but she has taken a dip in recent form and has yet to win over shorter than 2m3f. We'll take her on with LITTERALE CI, who is unexposed in this sphere and has ability. Little Light and Northern Beau can both also make their presence felt.
