Better effort in bumpers 7 months apart when 8 lengths fourth at Aintree weeks ago. Doesn't strike as an obvious type to make a winning start over hurdles.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

COQUELICOT was turned over at short odds on her hurdling debut but her jumping could be sharper with that experience behind her and she has to be worth another chance given the level of her bumper form. Hurdle newcomers Anythingforlove and Pure Bliss were also successful in bumpers and could be the pair to give her most to do.

Betting Forecast

13/2 Pure Bliss, 11/8 Coquelicot (Fr), 28/1 Gazette Bourgeoise (Fr), 33/1 Legendary Rhythm, 50/1 Lemon Hill (Ire), 150/1 Midnight Antics (Ire), 8/1 Gabrielle Du Seuil (Fr), 16/1 Cateline (Ire), 5/1 Anythingforlove, 20/1 Gold Clermont (Fr), 100/1 Minnie Mahler
