Form & Verdict
Irish point winner who has not shown a great deal in her her three hurdle runs this winter, with the standout effort a 19l fifth of 11 at Southwell (2m, soft) on her penultimate run; however, it is still very early days under rules and she represents a top yard so needs a close look back at this trip on her handicap debut.

Inconsistent last season but made winning handicap hurdle debut in January and was creditable second to progressive rival on last month's chasing debut at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft); open to improvement over today's longer trip and a big player if on her mettle again again.

Form & Verdict
Has a patchy record but she won twice over hurdles (2m1f, good) for Neil Mulholland last summer and was a fair fourth of 13 over C&D (soft) on her recent stable debut; that was eyecatching from off the pace and has claims if she can build on that.

Got the year off to a flying start when scoring at Catterick (2m, heavy; from a 4lb lower mark) on New Year's Day; that was her second win in succession (after Newcastle); wasn't at her best, perhaps too high in the weights, when last seen, so returns with a point to prove.

Two heavy-ground wins this winter, the latter here (1m7f) on New Year's Day; will be fine over today's longer trip but didn't see her race out here 25 days ago and probably needs to bounce back with a career-best run.
