Form & Verdict
In-form maiden who lost nothing in defeat when upped to 1m6f at Southwell, then did best work late returned to 1m4f at Kempton; back up 3lb but worth another go over this testing 1m4f; solid chance.

Four course wins, over this trip and 2m, but has had a lull in his fortunes since the latest of them in November and handicapper has been cagey about easing his mark.

Failed to go on from early promise on Flat and both wins came in minor hurdles in 2022; missed all of 2023 and ran as well as could have been expected on reappearance for new yard at Lingfield last month (1m5f); acts on Tapeta too and should take a step forward, however small.

Ultimately a shade disappointing on the Flat for Andrew Balding, beaten in a seller on his final run for that yard (May 2022); won two juvenile hurdles for Tom Lacey that summer but he's been off the track for 512 days; market instructive on stable debut.

Not much to shout about in five starts for Julie Camacho, but having undergone wind surgery he showed more when beaten less than a length into second of nine on stable debut at Newcastle (1m4f, Tapeta) ten days ago; due to go up 1lb and a player if building on that performance.

Struggled to make an impression in five starts for Julie Camacho, with those efforts interspersed with breaks and two separate wind operations; switches to Brian Ellison sporting a tongue-tie from an easing mark; best watched unless the market speaks favourably.

Form & Verdict
Good record on AW since visored, winning twice (over C&D and 1m6f at Chelmsford) and just found one who stayed the 2m better at Southwell last week; down the field on latest C&D run in November but likely to be competitive with Danny Tudhope back in the saddle (2-3 on her).

Was inconsistent but occasionally competitive in handicaps until breaking her duck at the tenth attempt at Newcastle (12.5f, Tapeta) in September; having gone up 6lb she was favourite in an amateurs' race back over that same C&D latest but was well below par; bit to prove now.

Took time to get off the mark but was suited by her first run over 1m3f on Tapeta when finding plenty at Southwell recently; back up 3lb but shouldn't be inconvenienced by the return to 1m4f; respected.

Form & Verdict
A win and a close second over 1m4f on turf when ground was good or quicker last summer; form slacked off after but there was more promise in her latest AW run, over C&D 17 days ago, to think she's edging back to form; might need a bit more weight off her back but one to bear in mind.

Not seen since a modest effort in first-time cheekpieces (now removed) at Haydock (1m4f, good) in September, but just 1lb higher than when second of seven on stable debut over C&D just under a year ago; that came after a similar absence and she can't be dismissed.
