Raced too freely and was well-beaten favourite when upped to 3m for seasonal/handicap debut in December, but still ran well to a point and this drop back in trip could be a good move; dangerous to ignore.

Dual hurdle winner last spring; tailed off in both chasing attempts, the latest over C&D, which is disappointing given she won her only start in Irish points; perhaps cheekpieces will prompt a change of fortune.

Back on a good mark now and her two runs last month hinted at a possible return to form; caught the eye making late headway from a long way off the pace at Taunton (2m3f, good to soft) recently; can't be ruled out.

Her last hurdle win was in November 2020 but she travelled strongly for a long way when runner-up here (2m4f) last month and got pestered for the lead when a well-held third at this track last time; looks interesting on that penultimate form and she could make a bold bid back at this trip.
