Some promise on hurdle bow at Down Royal but lesser efforts in maiden hurdle company twice since; handicap debut and will need to step up on what he's done so far.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner on the Flat in Britain; switched to this yard in October and gained a first win in this sphere in a maiden hurdle at Limerick last time with a nice prospect back in second; different ground now and may need to improve again to defy this opening mark but should have more to give.

Much improved to record wins at Ayr and here (2m1f) in December with cheekpieces fitted; solid third off 8lb higher at Leopardstown last month, having travelled well; not sure if this return to 2m4f will suit however.

Recent efforts not inspiring, but she has dropped 6lb lower than when making a successful return in May last year and the booking of Simon Walker suggests connections mean business; blinkers (only used once before over hurdles in September 2021) make a return; interesting.

Scored off 3lb higher at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack) last May but she's not matched that since and was only tenth of 11 here (9.4f) last month; has some form over C&D but she needs a major revival back up in trip.
