Obviously, there’s a certainly degree of guesswork attached to the chances of HIDE THE BISCUIT (best price 3-1) having her first run for a new yard, but providing she can run to the level she’s shown in Ireland on several occasions, or maybe even find just an extra bit of improvement, Tim Vaughan’s acquisition should be capable of going close in a race of this modest nature.

Well beaten by some useful mares in a decent little contest at Down Royal when last seen, prior to that the daughter of Whitmore’s Conn had figured prominently in a couple of hugely competitive handicaps hurdles at Downpatrick and Down Royal respectively. Indeed, in the latter of those performances at the Co Down venue, she stayed on well to finish a creditable third of a 20-strong field in a well-run affair and with several of those in behind that day going on to boost the form subsequently, she offered up more than a faint hope that she can finally shake off her maiden status at some stage. A dual winner between the flags in Ireland on good ground, today’s step up in trip and decent surface should, in theory, suit this lightly-raced eight-year-old and she rates a reasonable proposition at the morning odds.
