Won an ordinary Plumpton mares' 2m handicap in February (soft) and rallied well for second when 5lb higher at Huntingdon (2m4f, soft); up another 4lb but she's a willing mare who should have some say.

The most exposed of these after 11 starts over hurdles and she quite possibly coped best with the heavy ground when winning by a wide margin at Uttoxeter 12 days ago (2m4f; fine on good ground); an 8lb rise could have been worse but this will take a lot more winning.

Ran okay over fences before returning to hurdles with the cheekpieces back on and going close in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Market Rasen (soft); another big run looks on the cards off just 2lb higher.

Two fair chase runs this winter but may be better employed back hurdling, having run so well in one previous handicap, at Newbury (2m4f, soft) last March against one who is much more highly rated now; good contender.

Has not really taken to fences the last twice and she won her last race over hurdles, a 2m6f novice for mares at this course on heavy ground; has to prove herself worthy of current mark, however.

Off the mark at Uttoxeter (2m6f, heavy) on most recent hurdles start; disappointing on chase debut there since but pedigree suggests she should still have more to offer, including in this sphere; not written off.

Won soft-ground Irish point in October and made all on last month's rules debut at Newcastle (2m1f, heavy); that form isn't anything to get too excited about but she has obvious scope for improvement and Donald McCain has a good strike-rate (7-22) here.

Form & Verdict

Below her best on last three appearances, though a reluctance to settle (often the case) was never going to help when upped to nearly 3m the last time; she did win at Fakenham in November (7lb lower) on her last race at about this trip and heavy ground is fine.
