It's hard to oppose MISTY BLOOM, who produced a much-improved performance to win very easily on her recent handicap debut at Exeter and is 7lb well-in under a penalty here. Main danger Mrs Burbidge has done quite well on the Flat in recent months and reverts to hurdling on a workable mark, while handicap debutante Kilcara ran with promise in a Uttoxeter maiden this month.[Chris Wilson]

Jumped much better than on previous outings when winning 18-runner event very easily on recent handicap debut at Exeter (2m2f, good); due to go up 14lb for that and ought to be very hard to beat under 7lb penalty here.

Safely held on all three hurdle starts this season but in good form on the Flat (albeit at lowly level) in recent months, and now 6lb lower than when gaining narrow-margin success in this sphere at Worcester (2m, good) in September 2017.

Unexposed after only three hurdle starts and displayed clear promise when fourth in Uttoxeter maiden (2m, good) a fortnight ago; probably needs to improve again to strike on today's handicap debut but has the potential to do so, particularly if first-time hood helps her to settle.

Placed in two very ordinary Newton Abbot maidens this summer (both 2m5f, good) but soundly beaten in all four subsequent handicaps, the latest in plating company last month; tongue-tie/blinkers removed here.
