Faced very tough task when second of five to subsequent Cheltenham Festival runner-up Love Envoi at Sandown (2m4f, soft) in January and 2m on good ground proved too sharp at Doncaster last time; the last time she ran in a handicap she won at Cheltenham (2m4f, good to soft) in December 2021 and she's 3lb lower today; this should be run to suit and she could be a player.
