This might go to HURRICANE RITA, who was in good form when last seen in March and has subsequently joined a burgeoning new stable. Oi Oi hasn't lived up to her pedigree in novice company but is a possible improver on today's handicap debut and will be feared if strong in the betting. Cosmic Diamond was strong in the closing stages when third at Huntingdon on her latest outing and could prove better suited by this stiffer track.[Chris Wilson]

Came good over hurdles for Stuart Coltherd at Ayr (2m4f, heavy) in March and also ran well under penalty a few days later; back from 259-day absence here but should be fine on the faster ground and could easily have more to offer for new stable.

Held on well to open account in tactical event at Huntingdon (2m3f, good) in October and bounced back from lesser effort when staying-on third there (2m4f, good) a fortnight ago; raised another 3lb for that but shaped as though this stiffer track might suit.

Not really firing on all cylinders over fences since winning at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) in summer and cheekpieces didn't appear to make much difference on latest outing; now reverts to hurdling in first-time blinkers; needs to up her game.

Posted two decent efforts in defeat in February/March (2m2f/2m4f; both on soft); won't be far away if in similar form here but remains a maiden after nine starts and this her first outing for nine months.

Not yet fully exposed over hurdles but has been comfortably held in first two handicaps (2m/2m4f) and needs to find some improvement from somewhere.

Unable to land any sort of blow in three novice events this autumn (2m3f-2m5f) but is in good hands and comes from good jumping family; no surprise if she gets much more competitive on today's handicap debut.

Well beaten at triple-figure odds in three 2m maiden/novice hurdles this autumn; upped in trip and fitted with tongue-tie/cheekpieces for handicap debut; clearly needs to improve, but is worth a glance in the betting.

Beaten about 46l when fifth on handicap debut at Chepstow (2m7f, soft) three weeks ago but arguably ran a bit better than the bare facts suggest there, and might be seen in a better light on the less testing ground here.

Hasn't shown any significant promise in four maiden/novice hurdles (2m-2m1f) in recent months, but makes handicap debut off a lowly mark and the longer trip may enable some improvement.
