4-11 over hurdles when trained by Stuart Edmunds and and ran big race in defeat behind resurgent rival on last month's seasonal/stable debut at Plumpton (2m4f, soft; first-time cheekpieces); big player if that level of form can be transferred to fences on this chasing debut.

Form & Verdict
Came good over fences at Fakenham (2m5f, good to soft) on New Year's Day, where she travelled well for most of the way and found enough when it mattered; moves up in grade here but a recent 3lb rise doesn't look excessive and she's open to further progress over fences; respected.

Lacked fluency and made just a respectable chasing debut when third of five at Fontwell (2m2f, good to soft) in March but drew clear to win by 19l when back over hurdles here (2m4f, good) in May and effectively only 4lb higher for this return to fences.

Form & Verdict
Signed off for Paul Nicholls with two good-ground hurdle wins in summer 2021 (both 2m5f); could quite plausibly have more to offer over fences for Venetia Williams at some stage but has fitness to prove after 549-day absence and is untested on turf slower than good.

Form & Verdict
Very unexposed mare who shaped with promise in two 2m novice hurdles last year; soundly beaten on chase/handicap debut at Catterick (1m7f, soft) four weeks ago and not bred to benefit from today's step up in trip but still worth keeping an eye on in the betting.
