Won two non-handicaps for Philip Hobbs but well below her best in just two sightings last season and has since changed yards; limited appeal.

Capable on her day and was a convincing 3m winner at Southwell last June (good) despite jumping drastically right; not disgraced on first completion after a break at Taunton recently (2m, soft) and has possibilities over this more suitable trip.

Runner-up in two Taunton handicaps in early 2021 (2m3f/3m) and returned from long absence with another good effort at Chepstow (2m7f, good to soft) last month; can make her presence felt again.

Maiden; runner-up on both handicaps at the start of 2021 (travelled well when beaten a neck in the second of them); absent since but definitely worth a market check on her return from 21 months away.

Triple-figure prices in maiden/novice hurdles and has trailed home in all of them; represents a leading yard, though, and is now tongue tied for her handicap debut; any market move would be encouraging.

Verdict

Esme Shelby can go well again and Shesupincourt is likely to come up with another stout effort but FOLLOW THAT is taken to put a low-key Ffos Las run behind her. Her three previous handicap runs suggested she should have no trouble in finding a race and might indeed have done so on her return at Chepstow had she not made a pig’s ear of the last. Bashful Kate needs watching in the market on her handicap debut.[Emily Weber]
