Fair bumper winner in Ireland but patchy profile over hurdles for current yard, shaping as if amiss again at Hereford 4 weeks ago. Cheekpieces go on and bit to prove.

Irish point winner but yet to better modest form in bumpers/over hurdles, going off too hard in first-time cheekpieces at Taunton 5 weeks ago. Has slipped further in the weights and visor tried now.

Lightly-raced maiden who posted her best effort when third of 8 in C&D novice hurdle on her reappearance in October. Not so good twice since at Fakenham and work to do here.

Handled conditions well and didn't need to improve when off the mark in juvenile maiden hurdle at Leicester (15.5f, heavy, 2/5f) in November. Struggled in stronger company on 2 of her 3 starts since but this switch to handicaps rates a plus now. Can go well.

MAJESTIC JAMEELA has her sights lowered for her handicap debut and the 4-y-o could be the way to go. Gearing's Point and returning 2022-winner Eventful are a couple of the other likely players.

Betting Forecast

13/2 Gearing's Point, 6/1 Bombay Sapphire (Ire), 9/1 Criquette (Fr), 7/1 Lady Berlais, 11/1 Eliza Dolittle (Ire), 11/4 Majestic Jameela, 12/1 Callin Baton Rouge (Ire)
