              In depth

              Verdict

              The majority of these house form profiles which send out mixed signals. An obvious exception is the consistent Jaunty Soria who now has a first start for the Mulholland team and who should certainly be involved at the business end. She is far from bombproof though and a chance is taken with hurdling debutant TARA NIECE. She has delivered steady improvement in three bumper starts and her latest effort when a pleasing third at Stratford behind Stony Stream suggested she has a future now sent jumping. Her yard has made an excellent start to the season too. Cassis De Reine looks a player on the back of a solid enough handicap effort here last time and Sitron shaped quite nicely on hurdling debut last month.
