1/1
Bumper winner who is progressing nicely over hurdles, stretching her unbeaten record to 3 in 5-runner novice over C&D 23 days ago. The one to beat on that form, and open to further progress.

5/1
Fairly useful on the Flat and has matched that form over hurdles, including when splitting Nina The Terrier and Elle Est Belle with the run of the race over C&D 23 days ago. Should remain competitive.

2/1
Very useful dual bumper winner who was caught out by her jumping inexperience in the dash up the straight on her C&D hurdling debut won by Nina The Terrier 23 days ago. Type to improve markedly.

Ran to a fair level when placed in bumpers but has yet to match that level over hurdles, finding little when well held at Ludlow 23 days ago. Easily passed over.

50/1
Fairly useful hurdler/chaser in France who made it 4 wins from her last 6 starts in a claiming event at Argentan (21.1f) 27 days ago. However, she's pitched in the deep end on UK/stable debut.

17/2
Fame And Glory filly who justified market confidence in a Worcester bumper on her debut in May. Followed up on Huntingdon hurdle bow, despite being in need of the experience, and is sure to progress.

Forecasts

Nina The Terrier (1/1), Elle Est Belle (2/1), Ahorsewithnoname (5/1), Rainyday Woman (8/1), Theatre Glory (17/2), Spes Energicall (50/1), Jaunty Freyja (150/1)

Verdict

ELLE EST BELLE finished behind both Nina The Terrier and Ahorsewithnoname in a C&D event earlier in the month, but she was caught out by her jumping inexperience as much as anything in the dash up the straight, and with significant improvement on the cards, there's a good chance she can reverse the form with those 2 rivals. Theatre Glory has plenty of potential and shouldn't be overlooked, either.

  1. ELLE EST BELLE
  2. NINA THE TERRIER (IRE)
  3. THEATRE GLORY (IRE)
