Easy winner at Doncaster (3m, good to soft) last winter and also went close at Carlisle (3m1f, good to soft) in the spring, both under Dylan Johnston; not so good since but her latest fourth back at Doncaster was a bit better and she's well treated if staging a full-scale revival.

Best effort yet when beaten just 1l in a 2m maiden hurdle at Tramore two weeks ago; didn't settle the time before when tried at 2m4f but she's a point winner and she ought to be more effective over this sort of trip at some stage; has a bit to find on form.

£45,000 buy after runner-up in an Irish bumper in March; has run in two mares events over hurdles, winning at Huntingdon (2m3f, good) last month but she did so by a nose and it was only a four-runner race; more to do with 7lb penalty here.

Produced late on when winning mares' bumpers very smoothly at Southwell (2m, good) and Hexham (2m, soft); creditable second at Kelso later in the spring, also under 7lb claimer; bred to stay further but she has a big chance if that bumper form is a good guide.

Made very inauspicious start to hurdling career last season (once refused to race and once looked reluctant to jump off) but fared considerably better when placed in two 2m novice races in November (one here, both on soft); still comes with risk attached on this handicap debut, but she has the raw ability to be very competitive.
