Form & Verdict
Dual point winner and second in a Chepstow novice hurdle (for Paul Nicholls) in March 2021; absent until finishing second in a point 18 days ago (jumped poorly but only just beaten after a late charge); could be a real factor in this if she's recovered sufficiently from that effort.

Showed a good attitude when narrowly winning a Newton Abbot novice last month but beaten more than 20l in a Southwell handicap since, fading out of it late on; acts on soft and the novice win gives him decent claims.

Form & Verdict
Finally off the mark over hurdles (at the ninth attempt) when justifying 1-5 odds over C&D a week ago; had to work hard then but ought to make a bold bid again under a 7lb penalty.

Triple hurdle winner this season; seemed to take form to whole new level when collecting recent Southwell handicap (3m, good) by 39l and has very obvious claims under 7lb penalty here; effective on good and soft ground.

Consistent but made hard work of justifying 1-5 odds to get off the mark at Newton Abbot and then beaten at 4-11 there last week; again has leading claims but comes with risks unless a visor (replacing cheekpieces) helps.

Form & Verdict
Very little to show for her first five efforts over hurdles but better when third behind Basford over C&D last week; that gives hope but she'll need another sizeable step forward to reverse that form.

Form & Verdict
Flat winner last October and showed promise in first two hurdling attempts at the end of the year; fell on handicap debut in January and absent until tailed off at Warwick two weeks ago (jumped moderately, attracted attention of stewards); hood returns but tongue-strap (worn in Flat win) still missing; hard to know what to expect.

Appeared to have a lot to find in a Newton Abbot novice last time but he beat a good horse (subsequent winner) and that was on his stable debut; perhaps flattered after dictating a modest pace but needs considering back in a handicap despite that latest improvement blowing his mark.
