Absent since January 2020 and needs to prove she retains all her ability; however, she's in top hands and comfortably won a Listed mares' hurdle at Sandown (2m4f, soft) when last seen; has also won here (good to soft), and a 3m point; intriguing contender on her chase debut.

Two wins this season, by a distance at Warwick in November (2m4f, good to soft) and last time when making all for a much narrower verdict at Market Rasen (2m4f, soft); long time since she raced over this short a distance but she's a front-runner who jumps well.

Irish challenger; gained a fifth success over fences in a Galway handicap in October but that was at just over 2m2f, her furthest winning trip; well below best latest and, while she is cannot be dismissed, she has a bit to prove, especially stamina.
