Made a winning start for this yard in a Chepstow novice hurdle in March and she's finished a well-held third twice since. Dual point winner so could easily have more to come over fences.

Fairly useful novice hurdler, reacting positively to a first-time tongue strap (retained) when ready winner at Huntingdon when last seen in April. Point winner so ought to take to chasing.

Fair winning hurdler. Will need to step up a little on that form if she's to make a successful chase bow after 7 months off.

Fairly useful winning hurdler. Translated that ability to chasing at first time of asking when second of 4 in 3m Bangor maiden last month. Open to improvement. Has tongue strap on first time.

Verdict

Despite coming out second best on her chasing debut, there was a lot to like about MOLLY CHILDERS' performance and she drew well clear of the rest of the field at Bangor that day. Stuart Edmunds' six-year-old is now tried in a tongue-tie, which should help at the business end of proceedings, and it will be no surprise if she comes out on top here. Jet Set was a useful hurdler last season and is entitled to be on the premises if transferring the best of her form over timber to her new discipline, while Dinos Benefit claimed a notable scalp over timber in the spring and is well worth another try at this distance despite disappointing last time.

Verdict

MOLLY CHILDERS made a sound start to her chase career at Bangor last month and can make her experience count against 5 rivals who are tackling fences for the first time. Graceful Legend will clearly be a threat if he she can translate anything like her useful hurdle ability, while Huntingdon novice hurdle winner Jet Set landed a point at the start of her career.
