Won twice on the Flat for David O'Meara; has made a likeable start over hurdles and finished well to deny an enterprisingly ridden runner-up (useful) in a Taunton handicap on good to soft in February; with the pair clear, a 6lb rise seems okay and he only just missed out on running in the 4yo handicap at Cheltenham (reserve).

Placed on first two hurdle starts (1m7f/2m, good/good to soft), including here, then pulled up in Listed mares' event at Aintree (2m1f, soft) where she jumped right throughout; soft ground is expected today but she showed promise on such going on the Flat, and she could bounce back with a good run now reverting to a right-handed track.
