Two chase wins last winter over shorter; hasn't looked the strongest stayer in three runs over 3m under rules and she'll need to be cherry ripe to take this back from 232 days on the sidelines.

Two chase wins over about 2m6f last winter but she showed something new when easily accounting for her four rivals over about 3m at Chepstow (soft) on reappearance three weeks ago; 9lb higher today and back down in trip but she did it well last time.

Form & Verdict
Three chase wins over shorter in February and March and the horse that beat her in her bid for a four-timer is now rated 21lb higher; shaped well on her return to action at Ffos Las 12 days ago, only tiring after the last fence, and she's a strong contender.

Off the mark under rules in a 3m3f chase at Stratford in April (good to soft); returned from a three-month absence to win a 2m5f handicap hurdle at Newton Abbot in October and followed up over fences at Ffos Las two weeks later; not at her best over hurdles in hat-trick bid last month but no real surprise were she to bounce back.

Game winner of gruelling handicap chase at Stratford (3m3f, good to soft) in April and again looked suited by emphasis on stamina when keeping on well to reel in the long-time leader over hurdles at Newton Abbot (2m5f, soft) last month; probably needs a career best here.

9 yo Mare

Form & Verdict
Won three of her first four starts but there have been some long absences since her novice campaign (2019-20); no show in two runs in March (bled on former occasion); had wind op prior to her reappearance and her stable could hardly be in better form.

J: Ned Fox

T: Venetia Williams

Bumper and dual hurdle winner; 0-7 over fences and jumping lacked fluency when a tailed-off third last time (2m4f, heavy), with that on the back of a fall; stable having plenty of winners but this mare needs to pull her socks up.

Form & Verdict
Off the mark at the 19th attempt when making all in a handicap hurdle over the extended 2m7f here 16 days ago; encouragement for chasing on pedigree but likely she'll need to improve for fences to take this.

Won twice on slow ground towards end last year (both times over 2m7f) but has become inconsistent this season and was pulled up on two of her last three outings; current mark probably demands a career best; cheekpieces (left off last twice) refitted; not the percentage call.
