Showed much-improved form to get off the mark hard held at Ffos Las (21.8f) 7 days ago. Wisely turned out under a penalty and the manner of that success suggests she will prove tough to beat.

Improved this season, winning handicaps here/Newbury during second half of last year. Underwhelming display in jumpers bumper in February but no surprise to see a better showing back over timber.

Has a couple of creditable runner-up efforts at Bangor to his name this term but well below par when last seen at Newbury (26f) in December. Had wind op since and returns with yard amongst the winners

Dual hurdles winner who has had a disappointing season all told dropping away quickly early final circuit at Warwick (26f) in March. Eased 4 lb but he's tough to assess at present.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

LADY KK confirmed herself some way ahead of her mark when winning hard held at Ffos Las 7 days ago, notably impressive with the way she went through the race. She can follow up under a penalty, with Calva d'Auge and Umndeni next best, in that order.

Betting Forecast

11/2 Umndeni (Fr), 7/4 Lady Kk (Ire), 11/4 Calva D'auge (Fr), 10/1 Captain Tommy (Ire), 9/1 Diomede Des Mottes (Fr)
