Gained both hurdle wins in races confined to her own sex, and was rather workmanlike when justifying favouritism at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) on latter occasion in February; however, she's unexposed over this sort of trip and her best form puts her right in the mix here.

Justified odds-on favouritism with emphatic success on hurdle debut at Worcester (2m, soft) in October but had to settle for third and was a shade disappointing at Fontwell (2m3f, soft) this month; remains a good prospect but others in this line-up have more pressing claims.
