Form & Verdict
Left her first two runs well behind when third at 66-1 in Exeter maiden hurdle (2m1f, good to soft) last April on final outing for Henry Oliver; her new trainer is enjoying a fantastic season and her pedigree provides optimism regarding the step up in trip; could be in the mix.

Improved form when winning on stable debut at Sedgefield (2m4f, good) in January and went close under a penalty there (2m4f, good to soft) last Tuesday; shaped last time as though she may be suited by today's step up in trip, and she might also be the type to benefit from the cheekpieces.

Pulled up at triple-figure odds on her first two hurdle starts (2m4f/3m1f, good to soft); however, she's been coming under pressure early so may be the type to benefit from first-time blinkers, and she showed ability in good-ground bumpers, so isn't a totally forlorn hope.

Encouraging fifth of 16 on debut in Ffos Las bumper (2m, soft) in November before a lesser run at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy); however, there's potential in her pedigree, especially for this step up in trip on her hurdle debut, and it'll be no surprise to see a good run; betting may be informative.
