Opened account in bumpers at Fontwell and then an excellent fourth of 16 in listed event at Sandown (heavy). Shaped as if better for run when third here (23f) on hurdles bow/return and should improve.

Forecasts

Swincombe Fleat (6/4), Marmalaid (4/1), My Silver Lining (6/1), Chillabella (8/1), Lassue (17/2), Love Actually (9/1), Petticoat Lucy (14/1), Folly Hill (18/1), Talk Of The Moon (50/1), Danzini (66/1), Mizz Moondance (150/1), Kiwi Ling (250/1), Dark Heather (250/1)

Verdict

SWINCOMBE FLEAT shaped as if needing the run on hurdles bow/comeback here last month and her bumper form suggests she can do a lot better. Marmalaid failed to meet expectations in a Uttoxeter bumper but she should make a hurdler being out of a half-sister to Champion Hurdler Katchit, while Chillabella is a newcomer to note.
