Was well held behind Minella Cocooner and Minella Crooner at the Dublin Racing Festival; in behind Daily Present at Navan but career best when staying on well to win Grade 2 novice at Fairyhouse earlier this month in what looked a decent renewal, suggesting a step back up in trip should suit; has a bit to find up in grade here.

Won Ballinrobe bumper on debut for Stuart Crawford last year and workmanlike in justifying favouritism on hurdles bow for top yard in Naas maiden in January; looked a bit out of depth in smart Grade 1 novice at Leopardstown last time but will certainly appreciate this drop in class and remains open to improvement.

Form & Verdict
Second foal; dam point/2m-2m5f hurdle/chase winner, out of maiden half-sister to leading French jumper Mid Dancer (2m-3m5f hurdle/chase winner inc triple Grand Steeplechase de Paris); very stoutly bred and very likely to improve for what she does here.
