- Weatherbys TBA Jane Seymour Mares' Novices' Hurdle (Grade 2) (Class 1)
- 2m 3f 173y,
- 6 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Has really come to herself this winter and made it a hat-trick of wins when making the most of an easy task at Sedgefield last time out; previous Listed win at Haydock shows she handles heavy, and holds a solid chance in this field.
Highly tried in bumpers and over hurdles so far; her hurdling technique leaves plenty of room for improvement, lots to find on bare figures but keeps getting thrown in at the deep end, and suspicion is there's better there's better to come.
Irish raider; winner at Kilbeggan last year and has improved on that win this winter with a close fourth in a Listed contest at Thurles last time; step up in trip an unknown and this ground the deepest she'll have tackled, but deserves respect.
Fast-improving mare that only had to be ridden out hands and heels to win a good little novice at Wincanton last time out; ground likely no issue and the way she cruised home last time suggests there's more to come; big player, with trip no issue.
Might find this trip ideal after trying 3m at Haydock last time, where she didn't quite get home; has run very consistently this winter to a high level that gives her every chance here, and cannot be dismissed.
Has only a neck to find with Desaray Girl on their Haydock form last time out and this switch to a right-handed track could suit; has a 5lb pull in the weights as well, so every chance of success if she can take another step forward; handles heavy.
