611-6OR: 125CD
6/5

Sets the standard on her recent efforts, placed twice in competitive handicap hurdles at this trip this winter and latest third in heavy at Sandown shows she won't mind any further rain; steps back into novice company and clear chance on form.

11/2

Winner in heavy ground at Market Rasen two starts ago, looking very much a stayer in the process, but couldn't repeat that at Sandown last time and has ground to make up with Aimee De Sivola on that. Needs improvement here.

3/1

Improved out of all recognition to score at Ludlow by an easy 10l from the highly-regarded Subway Surf, but there appears to be no fluke about it; clearly going the right way and if handling likely slower ground here, must be a player.

511-6OR:
16/1

Has a bumper and a hurdle win to her name already, scrambling home at Fontwell last time but did seem to show stamina might be her long suit, and she did show a good attitude; needs plenty more here, but that's not impossible.

611-0OR:
10/1

Fourth in an Irish point-to-point last March, not seen since; nice mix of speed and stamina in the pedigree, and dam a half-sister to the top class chaser Captain Conan; market likely to prove the best guide.

611-0OR:
125/1

Won a bumper on Lingfield's all-weather surface last year (form solid enough) but she's not gone on from that and may be better off in handicaps after today. No realistic chance on what's she shown so far.

611-0OR:
200/1

Placed in a couple of point-to-points but well beaten on hurdles debut at Taunton last month, and needs plenty more to get involved here. Others readily preferred.

711-0OR:
100/1

Bred to stay well, so no real surprise she was outpaced in her only start in a bumper at Warwick, although that was back in the February of 2018 and she's not been seen since. Best watched unless market suggests otherwise.

611-0OR:
66/1

Placed in two Irish point-to-points last spring, purchased for £30,000 at Doncaster sales last summer; sister to the useful Spiritofthegames and a half-sister to five other winners; could be a useful recruit.

511-0OR:
9/1

Very useful form in bumpers last year, taking a Listed event at Cheltenham in November and handles soft ground, but an early casualty on her hurdles debut at Wincanton and that won't have helped her confidence. Trip an unknown too.
