Form & Verdict
The blinkers were working well at Wetherby as she held every chance when falling four from home; however, that's not the first time her jumping has let her down and she's now 0-9 as a chaser; comes with risks.

Hasn't really recovered her best in two hurdle starts after a chasing campaign; disappointing at Hereford latest and will need to better that if she is to add to her only previous success over hurdles, in December 2019.

Has worn cheekpieces or blinkers this season; won over fences at Taunton (2m5f, good to soft) in January; not helped by interference when 13l fourth on return to hurdles at Ludlow but, unlike some in here, she's fairly exposed now.

Cheekpieces/blinkers this season; won at Taunton (2m5f, good to soft) in January, opening her chase account at the tenth attempt, but jumping errors resulted in a modest show at Huntingdon (nearly 3m, soft) three weeks ago; back hurdling for first time in two years; she does stay 3m on soft and has a good mark if judged on best efforts.

Form & Verdict
Failed to progress in three starts over hurdles in Britain but is well treated on her useful French hurdles form and this looks easier than on her chase debut at Wincanton, where she ran better than her final position suggests.

Dual hurdle winner in France; 0-4 over fences here but has shown ability, as was the case when second under top weight in a mares' novices' handicap at Newbury (2m4f, soft) nine days ago; should be competitive on these terms, especially if first-time cheekpieces give her a lift.

There was promise in one of her novice hurdles when fifth at Wincanton (2m5f, heavy) but that's about it and she was tailed off on her handicap debut (3m2f) when last seen in March; this is no easy starter over fences.

Well beaten over hurdles at Wincanton 18 days ago, but she was previously a fair fourth on her chase debut in a Taunton handicap (2m5f, good to soft) and that penultimate run entitles this lightly raced 7yo to plenty of respect back over fences; has shown promise on soft; tongue-tie goes on.
