Form & Verdict
First foal; bought for £5,000 last year; plenty of stamina in the pedigree but dam won a bumper, which is a plus; top trainer has fair record in these races; could easily be good enough on debut.

Beat her four rivals comfortably at Kelso (good) in September but came up well short when showing similar form at Newcastle (AW); graduates from bumpers with improvement needed but her dam was a fairly useful jumper.

Beat only four rivals when winning on debut at Kelso (2m, good) in September, and she carries a 7lb penalty today; however, she had 6l to spare and is a leading candidate.

Five starts and yet to really threaten, but she's finished second in a Kelso bumper (2m, good) and a maiden hurdle at Southwell (2m, heavy), and the wind op and the step up in trip could prompt a bigger run today.

Some ability in two of her four starts, including on soft on debut and on hurdling debut last time when when beaten 22l in sixth of 12 at Musselburgh; more is needed but she is half-sister to a fairly useful hurdler.

J: Stephen Mulqueen

Kept on steadily for respectable fifth on recent hurdling debut at Ayr (2m, good to soft), where the ride she was given attracted the stewards' attention; open to improvement but will need to take a fairly big step forward to trouble the principals here.

OR:

Form & Verdict
Irish challenger; two runs earlier this season and pick of them when fifth at Roscommon in June; probably sets the standard on that and trainer among the winners lately.
