11st 8lb

J: William Maggs

Soundly beaten fifth on recent handicap hurdle debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) but her two previous hurdle runs (1m7f, soft) weren't without promise relative to this modest mark, and she's not written off.

Left in modest third at final flight on hurdle debut over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago and others have stronger form; however, she showed fair Flat form in the autumn and is open to improvement in this code; not ruled out.

1-28 on the Flat, and a bit below par when fifth of 12 at Newcastle (1m4f) three weeks ago; interesting to see how she takes to hurdling.

1-21 for Jim Bolger in Ireland; second in two of her six runs for this yard, including when upped in trip to go close off this mark against Bobby Shaftoe over C&D three weeks ago; that puts her firmly in the picture.
