All hurdles runs on soft; nicely progressive in winning novices at Ludlow (2m5f) and Warwick (2m3f) before having limitations exposed in a Grade 2 at Sandown; solid contender who should give her running but doesn't look strikingly well handicapped.

Bought for big money after making all to win by 10l on Irish point debut in October 2021; made an underwhelming bumper debut but ten months later she was prominent throughout en route to repelling a Henderson-trained favourite over 2m5f at Ludlow (soft); bred to go on to better things.

£235,000 buy after making all to win by 10l on Irish point debut in October 2021; had just one run for Dan Skelton but made a winning start for this yard when always front rank in 13-runner novice at Ludlow (2m5f, soft; 11-1) four weeks ago; one of the leading candidates on form and potential.

Bought for big money after making all to win by 10l on Irish point debut in October 2021 but managed only fourth of ten when favourite for belated rules debut in Southwell bumper in January and has been off for another ten months since; now with new stable (was with Dan Skelton); may yet have a good future but is not the most obvious answer here.
