Gio’s Girl

11st 2lb

J: James Best

T: Polly Gundry

Runner-up in two slow-ground novice hurdles in 2020 (both 2m7f) but, following a two-year absence, was pulled up in Class 5 handicap over C&D last month; current ability hard to gauge.

Kingsmill Gin

10st 2lb

J: James Best

T: Jackie Du Plessis

Sole win (17 races) was over 3m2f on good to soft at Taunton in December 2021; running creditably this season (3m/3m2f) but the step back down in trip asks a big question.

J: James Best

T: Sue Gardner

Both wins have come on heavy ground, justifying market support with clearcut success on chase debut at Exeter (2m3f) a month ago; jumped fairly soundly and a 7lb rise is not the end of the world.

T: Joe Ponting

Ran okay for a 125-1 chance at Taunton, finishing a 32l fourth of 14; likely to need more again.
