Comment: Showed clear signs of ability, for all that she failed to live up to market expectations on debut in a Fakenham bumper in April 2019. Subsequent absence an obvious concern ahead of this hurdles bow.

Comment: Irish point winner who made it third time lucky in bumpers at Sedgefield when last seen in December 2019. Will be a danger to all if fully-tuned up for this hurdles debut.

Comment: Fairly useful form in bumpers without success, by no means disgraced in a Grade 2 Aintree contest back from a break last month. Could be a force on this hurdles debut if her jumping holds up.

Comment: Fetched €28,000 as a 3-y-o and she's out of a 3m/25f hurdle winner. Runner-up sole start in Irish points in March 2020 and interesting to see which way she goes in the betting on Rules debut.

Comment: Winning Irish pointer and in the frame both bumper starts. However, she hasn't shown much in 2 starts over hurdles and will be of greater interest when going down the handicap route.

Comment: Irish point winner in May 2019 and went close in a Newcastle novice on Rules debut in February. Backward step at Market Rasen (16.6f) since, but this stiffer test should help. Cheekpieces enlisted.

Comment: Fair form on the Flat in Germany, albeit 0-5 in that sphere, and finished third in pair of 16.5f Taunton novices last month. Place possibilities if stamina holds out now upped in trip.

Comment: Shaped promisingly when runner-up in Wetherby bumper in January, but she has failed to build on that in 2 subsequent starts and needs to get back on track now switched to hurdles.

Comment: Dr Massini mare. Dam, bumper winner, half-sister to useful hurdler/chaser (stayed 3m) Victorias Groom. Jockey bookings suggest that Forthegreatergood is the stable No 1.

Comment: Modest maiden hurdler/chaser for Sophie Leech. Creditable fifth of 16 on debut for new yard in 19.4f Chepstow handicap hurdle following 17 months off in March, but she looks vulnerable all the same.

Comment: Wasn't entirely disgraced when fourth of 9 over this C&D on second hurdles start 13 days ago. However, she's another who may have more joy in handicaps further down the line.

If fit enough to do herself justice following a 16-month absence, MEEP MEEP MAG may well be the answer. She showed plenty of ability in bumpers in 2019, notably finishing second to a subsequent Grade 2 novice hurdle winner at Wetherby, and this former point winner is likely to relish this stiffer test now switched to hurdles. Glimpse of Gala and Monete rate the main dangers.
