Hasn't won since August 2022 for previous yard; has been knocking on the door recently, third at Gowran Park (9.5f, good) this month and second at York on Saturday; still to prove she stays this far on the Flat.

Her two wins were in summer 2022 but seriously competitive almost every time for new stable since the autumn, over hurdles and on Flat; apparently not the best handicapped but this Irish-trained challenger needs respect.

Maiden on the Flat for Richard Hannon; however, has won a couple of times over hurdles recently for new yard; may well be a blot on the handicap back under this code and the booking of Tom Marquand is a plus.

Ex-Richard Hannon; made it 2-4 over hurdles when well on top late on at Ffos Las (2m, good; handicap debut) and has since finished second back on the Flat; 8lb rise for last time asks a question of him but this 4yo is improving.

0-7 on the Flat but he made it third-time lucky over hurdles when justifying support in Wincanton maiden (1m7f, good) last month; this is tougher on handicap hurdle debut but he did it in good style last time and should have more to offer in this sphere; effective on soft and he's respected for yard that won this last year.

Improved form with a tongue-tie and being ridden prominently, beating Tafsir (who's now 3lb worse off) by just over 1l when making all at Ayr in April (1m5f, good) and close second to Two Auld Pals (now 1lb worse off) over C&D in May (soft; led until close home); disappointed when favourite at Doncaster on Thursday though and again unlikely to have his own way in front.
