Has blossomed over hurdles in recent months. with her handicap mark going up from a modest 83 to a current 104 as a result of two course wins at around this trip and two placings over further; failed to exploit a much lower chase mark last time, when she trainer balmed good ground for a lifeless display; needs to bounce back.
