    Springfield Gilda is a five-year-old mare who has just had her third run over hurdles and will now qualify for a handicap mark.

    She ran several decent races in NHF events, including being sent off favourite and finishing second to Be Fair. She would appear to act on good ground and softer, although the evidence is limited.

    She stayed on particularly well when encountering softish ground and slightly extended trips and this would suggest strongly that she is likely to prove best when given a decent stamina test.

    So far, her three hurdles runs have been over no further than 2m1f. On the first occasion, she was pulled up and subsequently not seen out for a year (problem?). The second run (last month) saw her finish fourth in an average contest, not beaten far having travelled very well but seemingly lacking fitness or speed in the closing stages. Her most recent start saw her run a very quiet race(!) in the fog at Leicester, held-up and finishing in mid-division in a slowly-run heat.

    I reckon she is definitely one to look out for over 2m4f+ in handicap company in the next month or two, particularly if the yard maintains its half-decent run of form. She should hopefully be given a mark somewhere around 90, which would make things very interesting indeed!

    Springfield Gilda finished third of eight (14/1) beaten a long way (admittedly by two quite decent performers) over 2 miles on soft ground at Towcester on Boxing Day.

    Since then she has had a couple of entries but has never been declared to run, and the trail has gone cold in recent weeks.

    Providing she is still in training, she remains one to watch when reappearing although may need a run to get fit again now.<br>
