Form & Verdict

Showed plenty of promise in her three bumpers but she's been unplaced all six starts over hurdles including when tailed off in a Ludlow novice (2m5f) two weeks ago; now goes handicapping back at 2m but she needs a transformation; tongue-tie is removed after one use.

Off the mark when landing a Chepstow handicap (2m, heavy) in January and she's been beaten less than 2l over C&D (good to soft) and at Exeter (soft) in both subsequent starts; up another 2lb but her latest second was behind an improver and she's respected on this drop back in grade.

Both wins (19 starts) came very narrowly, most recently at Kempton last February; had been runner-up at 50-1 in this race on heavy ground the time before; refused to line up once in October and well beaten in early December but an each-way case can be made.

Went close in point bumper last winter; shaped with promise over C&D (soft) and at Exeter in her first two hurdle runs but was laboured on her handicap debut at Ffos Las (2m4f) last month; still has time on her side and now drops back in trip but she needs to kick on again to make a serious impact; tongue-tie added.

Five-race maiden; easily her best run in handicaps was an 8l third on heavy ground at Chepstow and there was an excuse at Exeter as she made a very bad mid-race mistake; has run moderately at 2m4f but she should stay.

Capitalised upon some significant help from the handicapper when winning by 8l over C&D (good to soft) two weeks ago; still very well treated on older form, but moves back up from Class 5 company today and it's hard to predict whether her revival will gather momentum.
