6-6 over hurdles/fences for Iain Jardine this season, with most notable success coming from a long way off the pace in Summer Plate at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft); also very well suited by this track and Harry Cobden (aboard the last twice) keeps the ride for today's first start back with Claire O'Connell

Five wins from five starts since joining Iain Jardine, the first off 21lb lower over C&D (soft) and the latest the valuable Summer Plate over fences off 4lb lower at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft); should go very well again.

Ex-Irish mare who is 4-4 for new stable this year, alternating between hurdling and chasing; carries 5lb penalty for beating only two rivals at Perth (2m4f, soft) on Sunday and is 1lb out of the weights here but is evidently in prime form.
