Put most of his previous form well behind him in first-time blinkers when bolting up in a 2m5f handicap hurdle at Downpatrick on Friday; gets the mandatory 7lb penalty here but only went up 8lb for that win which would seem generous; clearly the one to beat here.

Sprang a surprise win in emphatic fashion over C&D latest; 9lb rise in the books looks more than fair and surely gives her a solid opportunity to back it up; looks a different mare now and is taken seriously.
