Form & Verdict

Consistent mare with four hurdle wins to her credit, most recently when accounting for Make My Heart Fly at Down Royal in June; versatile as to trip and ground and could play a hand here, although may find a couple too good.

Tailed off on last Saturday's stable debut in Ascot Grade 2 (2m7f, soft) when trip/ground shouldn't have been an issue; hard to be confident after that but she perhaps went off too hard and a good case can be made for this versatile 9yo based on the pick of this season's 2m-3m Irish form.
