W: 12st 2lb

9 yo Mare

OR: 107

Form & Verdict
1-10 over hurdles when trained in Ireland, the win gained over 2m4f on heavy ground in March 2021; safely held in two chases this year but still worth a glance in the betting before today's stable debut.

Form & Verdict
Made nothing better than a respectable stable debut when fifth at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) three weeks ago but that was her first run for over a year and she remains very well handicapped on old form.

Didn't fare badly when fifth at Uttoxeter last month on stable debut after a year off but pulled up since; sole win gained in Ireland more than two years ago; the first-time cheekpieces need to give her a boost.

Form & Verdict
Much improved form since returning from a layoff last month, more recently when winning Market Rasen maiden (2m4f, good); moves up in trip for today's handicap debut and could easily have more to offer; shortlisted.

Form & Verdict
Pulled up on her chasing debut two starts ago but has made the frame in all three hurdling starts this year; doesn't appear to have much margin for error off current mark but is well suited by good ground and this C&D; probably won't be far away.

Form & Verdict
Safely held in two chases this spring but capitalised upon some help from the handicapper in 17-runner C&D hurdle three weeks ago (first-time tongue-tie); still on workable mark after 5lb rise; must be considered.

Betting Forcast

25/1 Chenery, 20/1 Dame De Ruban, 6/1 Rocked Up, 10/1 Czech Her Out, 5/1 Present Storm, 11/2 Hey Frankie, 14/1 Tara Niece, 7/1 Newtown Pery, 20/1 Persuer, 10/1 Sheila Nash, 14/1 Lil Codey, 40/1 Golden Glory, 6/1 Cresswell Queen, 14/1 Miss Bamby, 33/1 Dorette

Verdict

Good cases can be made for several of these mares but top of the list is unexposed 6yo HEY FRANKIE, who made a very promising handicap debut over 2m4f last month and now tries a new trip. Recent maiden winner Rocked Up also moves up from 2m4f today and is feared most, while Cresswell Queen, Newtown Pery and Present Storm are just some of the other appealing options.[Chris Wilson]
